Possibly one of the best electronic albums I've listened too, if you haven't listened yet; Sit in a dark room with just this in your ears, you will have an experience. Jaar is the best at making you feel the music

By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Mar. 2011
Format: Audio CD
Minimalist techno? Possibly/maybe. I wouldn't call it that
myself. Nicolas Jaar's debut album 'Space Is The Only Noise'
doesn't fit tidily into any particular box truth-be-told and
that is why it sustained both my interest and admiration.
Each of the 14 pieces in the collection sort-of reach out
and tap you on the shoulder to announce their fragile presence.
Two of the tracks ('Sunflower' and 'Trace') are less than a
minute long but nothing ever really overstays its welcome.

Mr Jaar stiches sound together into something resembling a
sonic patchwork quilt. There is logic and order at work in
the compositional structures but there is also a little chaos
mixed in for good measure just to keep us on our toes.

Some of the pieces have a coherent rhythmic narrative.
'Variations' is a delightful invention which had my toes
tapping despite themselves. A pinch of tribal; a dash of
folk; a soupcon of fractured falsetto soul. Wonderfully
weird yet also curiously emotionally affecting.

The clicks and clatters; the ghost-rider reverb guitar and
the half-heard whispered words of 'Too Many Kids In The Dust'
is another piece of beguiling musical voodoo, not unlike some
of the tortured and ambiguous sound-dramas of Tom Waits.

The subdued latin beats and bubbling underwater chords of
'Keep Me There' conjure up a spooky cheek-to-cheek Danse
Macabre. Like one of those wonderful Mexican Dia De Los
Muertos arrangements of tiny skeletal figures going about
their daily business oblivious to the fact that they no
longer have flesh on their bones!

The best album I've heard since Panda Bear's Person Pitch. The music comes from a different background but it has the same sort of feel as Noah Lennox's classic. A beguiling mix of inventiveness and strangeness that manages to stay warm and inviting at the same time.

I don't listen to hype. I didn't even know that Jaar was being "hyped". Some people seem to think that critical acclaim is the same as "hype". Have they thought that some people might actually like the album.

I got into Nicolas Jaar after hearing his mixes on YouTube. For me, the album doesn't work as well. Less cohesive and at points felt more like a soundscape album. Great quality and Jaar is clearly talented...but not what I expected from the album.

Brilliant new sounding electronica with different beeps and bops that compliment each other throughout!
