    It's the wealth of exquisitely baroque moments, exploring history as a pliable, multi-dimensional rift, that makes Age Of Lopatin's most ambitious album yet. There is exceptional sonic depth, and those who were confounded by his dive into industrial alternative on Garden of Delete will notice a bewildering continuity.

    It's not difficult to call an album as multi-layered and fascinating as Age Of a landmark work.

    Textures plough and pound throughout the album, revealing yet another new, unclassifiable side of OPN's musical brain as he brings more disparate sounds to the fore. [Jun 2018, p.115]

    Frequently overwhelming yet unconventionally comforting, there's a bebop-style envelope-pushing at work. [Jul 2018, p.95]

    Age Of is an excellent and frequently rewarding album; where one might expect a musical cul-de-sac, there is a 180-degree turn that somehow always feels appropriate, a testament to two years of songcraft that have clearly paid dividends.

    Age Of is a maddening, compelling, even thrilling record that feels like a conclusive summation of everything the Oneohtrix Point Never project has been (or even hinted at) to date.

    Daniel Lopatin’s eighth album as Oneohtrix Point Never finds him splitting the difference between the synth-based abstraction of his previous albums and a more visceral, abrasive style. While neither of these are bad templates to work from per se, the result is an album that doesn’t know what it wants to be.

    A strange album in so much as if there's one artist you'd never have expected to stop testing his audience/pushing the boundaries it would beA strange album in so much as if there's one artist you'd never have expected to stop testing his audience/pushing the boundaries it would be Daniel Lopatin. 'Age Of' start off with a lot of nods to 'R Plus 7' and then slowly gets chewed up into something that resembles a more 'pop' as opposed to 'rock/industrial' version of 'Garden of Delete'. None of this is a criticism in the slightest as it turns out, the quality is still ramped up, wild innovation wasn't required this is still fascinating and addictive. Expand
