Yes, but this album is more electronic focused with a pop vocalist performing in most of the songs.

No, no no no no no. This is nowhere near his worst. That would be the soundtrack he did recently.

"hmm that makes me want to give this a go, but apparently it's his "worst one""

It's Xenophanes' least favourite release by Olafur. However, just because he doesn't like it doesn't mean it's bad. Listen to it and judge for yourself.

I mean, yeah, I'll agree his older stuff is better. But that's just, like, my opinion, man.

3.5 is just the most logical score for the record. Omni knows what's up.

You know, after amemento said his older stuff was better, I had to downgrade my score to a 3.5. 'Cause it's true. His older stuff is sooooo much better.

Edit: Lowered my score even more. There's just too much of a contrast in quality between his older stuff and this.

Agree about the vocals. Sometimes they are great and other times unnecessary. But it's the first time Olafur has ever used vocals, so I bet he will perfect how they are used with his music eventually.

That's might be one of the most beautiful albums I've heard this year
