Here's how to review music
I don't like eating 5 stars because nothing is ever perfect. That being said, I loved this album for what is was (fav tracks No Problem and 4ware). Now what really make me mad is when people walk into a new album expecting the same thing they got last time! Then they turn around and say Imaginary Friends is Avitary because they are the SAME STYLE. Isn't that exactly what you want? Believe it or not, artists don't like releasing the same track over and over and over. Doing something different does not mean he has stopped trying. But for what it's worth he didn't really like this album either way so yah.
Ps. Minimalist and simple are two far different things.
Repetitive but classic
By Electric Beast
People mention that Deadmau5's songs are repetitive, but Joel just does that. Repetitive songs are just classic for the man with the Mau5head. I personally like the classic repetition that Mau5 uses in his songs. Their good for dance parties IMO
Can you imagin a show where he opens with "Imaginary Friends"?? I can ...... 'cause I've seen it done ..... and it's unreal. TYSM for making an awesome album and awsome tunes ..... !!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I get why it isn't everyone's favorite
Listening in headphones is kind of underwhelming, but live this record is amazing so I can't really say I don't like it.
This album proves that Mr. Zimmerman keeps getting better and better at his craft.
This is My Jam
I can get down to this. Easily.
Some people might like you because of your music, but I do because you put EFFORT into it. Keep up the good work.

This album sounds more like his stuff before his 2012 album without a title, which is a good thing. Colorful beats, lots of emotion, and heavy hitting.
4ware is a beautiful synth track.
2448 sounds repetitive at first but if you're patient enough to listen to the 2nd half, it's worth it. He slowly builds up the sound effects while the beat hits, it's a cool experience.
Cat thruster is a cool funk sounding track like a 2nd part to Seeya off while1/2.
Dues ex machina has a cool vibe to it, he should have incorporated the relaxing part at the end more in the beginning.
Glish should have been a full track, it has unique sound effects.
Imaginary friends is easily the best track, classic epic build up into a pulsing dance track. Very listenable.
Let go is a nice single, an antithesis to I remember. Similar effects and nice vocal track
No problem and snowcone are awesome beats. No problem had beautiful piano keys in it and snowcone has a heavy heavy beat with dark effects
Chicken wing and whelk then are also darker heavier tracks, which I prefer, great way to end the album before the let go edit.
Great album, I am very pleased he's back to a traditional album after While 1/2. I liked it but I prefer his full tracks with build up and effects
