EDITORS’ NOTES

Dance-floor kings Skrillex and Diplo show some sophisticated range on their debut album as Jack Ü. “Beats Knockin” turns a New Orleans-style “Triggerman” beat into a synth-heavy workout with MC Fly Boi Keno. Then they immediately flip it on “Take Ü There,” messing with skittering snares and pop melodies atop a juicy, soulful vocal from rave queen Kiesza. There's dark dancehall with Bunji Garlin, low-slung R&B on “Mind,” the tropical-flavored “Where Are Ü Now” with Justin Bieber—Jack Ü is a caffeinated, sensual, super-fun amalgam of everything club music should be.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Ü aren't ready for this

Killer beats. These guys are destroying the scene right now and I can't wait to hear more from them soon.

Ouch!

“Jack u” is the compilation of random, uninspired noise haphazardly clanging to an abstract montage of repugnance. Any amount of artistry and inspiration that Skrillex once possessed has been recklessly castrated by Diplo and replaced with a seemingly intentional obliteration of any redeeming qualities. Each track unevenly builds only to be massacred by sounds reminiscent of a screaming infant at a narcotic-induced circus.

SCREAMING

I've waited for months for this album to come out and it just hit me. (ps. I'm posing this from heaven because this album killed me)
