iTunes Review

In some ways, Jamie Lidell is returning here to the techno dabblings that marked his ‘90s work on his own and with Super_Collider. But more significant is the presence of genre-bending auteur Beck as a key collaborator on these tracks. The result takes Lidell’s natural R&B instincts and subjects them to a rigorous industrial treatment, resulting in an album that both prods and seduces the listener. The rattling metal-funk of “The Ring,” “Gypsy Blood” and “Completely Exposed” surround Jamie with clanging rhythms and echoing atmospherics. “I Wanna Be Your Telephone” suggests a mutated updating of ‘80s-era Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis groovesmanship. Lidell turns down the clatter on “It’s a Kiss” and “You See My Light,” delivering subdued yet sensuous performances. Compass reveals its fullest vision on its title track, a sparse, acoustic-rooted number with eerie psychedelic interludes. With stellar support from the likes of Leslie Feist, Nikka Costa and Chilly Gonzales, Lidell follows his inner compass into fascinating territory on this risk-taking album.

THIS IS WHAT CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE MUSIC IS!!!!!!

Jamie Lidell's COMPASS is just simply AMAZING!!! Genius...

Absolutely Brilliant Album

This is my favorite Jamie Lidell album to date. It is amazing from start to finish.So incredibly innovative. All of the songs on this album are great, but definitely check out Completely Exposed, Your Sweet Boom, She Needs Me, The Ring, Coma Chameleon. Pretty much the entire album. This is one of my favorite albums of the year. There is no way anyone who actually listened to this whole album would compare it to Justin Bieber.

You're better than this Jamie.

Mr. Lidell's biggest talent is his voice. Sure wish his music was based around his voice. Too many crazy sound effects and hypnotic beats scare me away. I saw him live in Austin when I was in college, and I remember thinking "Wow, that guy can sing." After trying to look up his music on-line I've just been disappointed with how his music doesn't seem to be based around the man singing. Sure some songs like "Little bit of Feel Good" and "Multiply" are a perfect meld of his vocals/digital instruments. But when you listen to songs like "Game for Fools" you can't help but wonder why this man doesn't take his singing more seriously.
