Strung together with downtempo drum beats, silky basslines, warming pads, and soulful vocals, it’s a very consumable album with little to jolt listeners' senses.
Music for Airports comprises of calming tones that induce sedation and tranquillity. Listeners are invited to float among soft, fluffy ambient clouds.
The album is constantly evolving. The rare moments of tranquility take your breath away; they feel important and momentous due to the vast textural contrast.
Singularity is ultimately a record to admire rather than cherish, but there’s enough scope here for it to become a favourite for electronic listeners.
A constant stream of static with blunt edges, and the glitches are rarely more than a few moments apart, but it doesn’t come off as overbearing.
To get the most out of the record, listeners must embrace the obscurity and relish the moments of discomfort; probing shadows in order to find answers.
Layers upon layers of sensuous strings, steady soundscapes, and ghostly vocals combine to create an record that is impressive, yet fatiguing.
This is ambient Muzak. For all its smoothness and gentleness it barely leaves any impression at all.
The aura of each composition is beautiful, yet there's also the aching feeling of something missing. Stunning, and yet also oddly forgettable.
This isn't a game changer; instead a proud statement, delivered with finesse and flair by one of the true masters of IDM.
