EDITORS’ NOTES

On the title track Gotye whisper-sings into a lo-fi filter over spacy drones, sounding a lot like Spiritualized’s Jason Pierce. The following “Easy Way Out” makes good use of '60s-style fuzz guitar, tambourine, and bombastic drum parts before his falsettos in the chorus recall a young Beck Hansen. “Smoke and Mirrors” contrasts orchestral accouterments with a big, boomy tribal rhythm.

good stuff

Haven't listened to the entire album yet because Somebody I used to know is just so good. I listen to it over an over.

Diverse and Fabulous - An Every Track Album

His voice calls back the likes of Sting, Bono or Peter Gabriel. Perhaps a mix of them all. He's influenced by the greats, and it shows. I love love love. I can listen to the album from beginning to end and remain in love the whole time.

Son of Sting??

I loooove this album! Is it just me or does he sound like Sting on "Somebody That I Used to Know"?
