The long-awaited artist album from the most analog synth-happy guy in electronic dance music has arrived, and there’s plenty to love even if you’d never adulterate your liquor with Red Bull. High points include the Tangerine Dreamlike intro and triplet feel of “Right This Second” and the quacking sync synth that defines the Wolfgang Gartner collab “Animal Rights.” Throughout, Deadmau5’s mastery of evolving timbres is practically the Platonic form of Eno’s ethos that “repetition is a form of change.” (Ultra | deadmau5.com)
