EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s an uncanny quality about Daniel Lopatin’s music as Oneohtrix Point Never, the sense of a half-remembered past arranged in ways that only make it feel further away. Pivoting from the nu-metal memories of Garden of Delete, Age Of—produced in part by electro-soul auteur James Blake—has a compact, almost baroque quality, with touches of medieval music (“The Station,” “Myriad.Industries”), hymns (“Warning”), and pastoral bits of ambience (“Toys 2”), balancing the avant-garde with an instinct for melody and play that have always set Lopatin’s music apart. Most striking—and unexpected—are Lopatin’s forays into conventionally structured, vocal-based songs (“Babylon,” “Black Snow,” featuring ANOHNI), which bring his music to the brink of familiarity without ever settling in.

Virtuosic jouney into mehhh

Age Of? Well, it's fine. Easy to "get" all of the musical influences. Sure, there are some good tracks. Overall; congratulations OPN, WARP, et al, on this well marketed commercial success. Myriad at Park Ave Armory was sonically terrific, tho anthropomophizing them sculptural objects was a total joke. It's not so much that OPN's gotten lost here. Yes, this album is some type of growth musically. It's not that I'm hoping for a return to earlier OPN... I'll just be waiting for what's next, feeling it'll probably be a lot better than this.

Great soundtrack for an upcoming Ken Burns documentary

Loved this body of work. Speaks to the texture of the modern world and how our technological toys and egos have made us weaker, less evolved beings. I’d love for Ken Burns to use this music in an upcoming documentary on our current times - from 2015-2020. Facebook, Twitter, Trump, Russia, Climate Change, Plastic Oceans, Floods, Wild Fires, Mars has water!
French Novelist George Bernanos Quote:
“I have thought for a long time now that if, some day, the increasing efficiency for the technique of destruction finally causes our species to disappear from the earth, it will not be cruelty that will be responsible for our extinction and still less, of course, the indignation that cruelty awakens and the reprisals and vengeance that it brings upon itself…but the docility, the lack of responsibility of the modern man, his base subservient acceptance of every common decree. The horrors that we have seen, the still greater horrors we shall presently see, are not signs that rebels insubordinate, untamable men are increasing in number throughout the world, but rather that there is a constant increase in the number of obedient, docile men.”
