4.5 superbthis is the best album that i\\\\\\\'ve (n)ever heard in my entire life. | March 27th 20

Continuing the tradition of ~making shit real slow~, Jaar's newest release is approximately -400 BPM. At this point the facade of house that Sirens just barely still clung to is entirely decomposed, leaving behind a mostly skeletal ambient/electroacoustic album with few - albeit immensely gratifying - instances of a pulse. Since his seminal album Space Is Only Noise, Jaar's work has gotten substantially more intimidating to digest. Fortunately, the chore of sitting through this glacial decay has remarkable payoff, and the relative decongestion makes this a much more immediate experience than Sirens.

I mean its not really that great. For an artists who makes pretty amazing deep house music, his take at atmospheric ambient music really isn't there at all.

Together with Sirens, my favorite of his solo releases.

5.0 classicSlex | March 30th 20

A filmic nightmare of borderless density and pulsating menace, each empty space introducing haunting suggestions circling an enveloping void

Ambient electroacoustic, is that you Nicolas? The dude evolved so much he now encompasses all kinds of electronic music and can't be pinned down with one staple. Long before the worldwide lockdowns, Jaar imposed himself a lonely quarantine. This results in a meditative piece of work, as dark as 2017-2019, but not as deconstructed. This is the stripped down companion to his other 2020 release. 3.6

Production overall is great. The album as a whole is a little slow for me.
