Apr 10, 2014
Cosmogramma could be a synonym for diversity, as this album touches and expands boundaries that seems impossible for one disc to manage. With some instrumental tracks and others with guest vocals from artists like Thom Yorke, the magnitude of this album is blinding, and that's definietly a good thing. Cosmogramma is dynamic, with tracks ranging in pace, feel and genre. Tracks flow seamlessly, making the album feel like a cohesive journey through the cosmos, instead of a stop-start ride into Manhattan.
Those who aren't familiar with his style may struggle through the first track or two. But after getting quickly acquainted, this album makes listening active, instead of passively entertaining.
