Some kind words from the press on Random Access Memories:
Jon Tye (Lo Recordings) in Music Week:
"A fascinating blend of electronic and organic tones that combines to create something undeniably special.
Immerse, expansive and haunting, it manages to be otherworldly and familiar at the same time.
If Radiohead were to make an instrumental album it might sounds something like this but possibly not as good”
"…Random Access Memories is replete with cinematic moments (…) these fragments of evocative sounds are shored together into elegiac and radio friendly melodies. Remarkably, Random Access Memories has the potential to appeal to both devotees of nuanced instrumental music, and, in its poppier moments, those who crave something more extroverted."
"... airy, poignant melodies and textural atmospheres..."
"Random Access Memories itself, is an exploration of rhythm, carefully blended atmosphere and a definition of composition that’s exquisitely spliced to drive towards a vibrant sequel."
"Kirmann’s got a knack for deconstructing genres, then layering them carefully onto tight IDM beats—so carefully, in fact, that you don’t notice, your attention drawn by whichever genre you’re comfortable with."
