17 Songs, 2 Hours 18 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s no mistaking Bassnectar’s 11th album for anything other than a gauntlet thrown. Representing the more breakbeat-minded side of an EDM movement affiliated with precision trance, the former metalhead grinds and bangs his way through tracks that quake and seize with fractious energy. Some songs offset the cataclysmic beats with bright melodies (“Into the Sun”), while others find fiery MCs to to echo the drama (“Speakerbox,” with vocals by Lafa Taylor). But everything hits heavy and hard, with bass drops weighty enough to crack the dance floor.

He does it again

It seems like just yesterday that NvsB was considered a new album, and now another one a year later? ItS surpassed NvsB in many ways, which is saying a lot. There’s bangers, beautiful, emotional and downtempo songs all packed into this album. There’s old school and new school nectar sound, as well as some brilliant new methods and styles we haven’t heard from him before. This is some of his best work, Chasing Heaven is such an emotional song in so many ways, how do you do it Lorin? I’m so glad I was able to experience many of these songs at Red Rocks this year and now I can relive those awesome moments. This is art. This album will take you to another world and make you express yourself and think in ways you didn’t know were possible; it’s so inspiring. It’s MAGIC.
