I get the sense this is a polarizing album from reading other reviews, and the pitchfork review conveyed disappointment. However, I think this is an amazing album and if you are a Skrillex fan you should not hesitate to buy it. I have almost all of the Skrillex EPs and remixes and recognize this album represents a step in a new direction, but change is good. Skrillex avoids becoming formulaic, or a self-parody, and provides a lot of variety on this album. Every song on this album can stand on its own and it is a fun high energy listen.

I am hoping Skrillex will continue to evolve his sound, because I think that can only prolong his career and will keep things fresh. That said, I get the sense that making music is unpredictable and not every album can be a breakthrough or a become a new favorite. Recess isn't Bangarang, but that doesn't mean it is void of entertainment. Skrillex has set a very high bar, no doubt, so this album might not meet expectations in some ears, but don't let expectations get in the way of some fun. This album has some awesome highs and is solid throughout.

I have listened through this album multiple times and here are a few impressions about individual songs:

Most Epic (Scary Monstersish)...
All is Fair In Love and Brostep
Try it Out

More catchy tunes with big drops...
Recess
Ragga Bomb
Ease My Mind

Like the music playing in an elevator ride taken in the middle of a chase scene from some generic action-comedy...
Doompy Poomp

A Kpop collaboration that would make Psy jealous...
Dirty Vibe

Title line says it best. This LP is probably not for the hardcore dub or electric crowd. But if you were listening to music during the 90's and remember those electric or techno remixes that had hip hop flavor and was only played on independent radio channels. Then this LP is for you! Skrillex remembers where the sound came from and this LP is like a throwback to those times. This sound was hard pressed to find back then and even now. And to anybody who knows hip hop knows FATMAN SCOOP voice immediately on the track Recess! Thanks for the tribute to a sound that STARTED DUBSTEP! Remember the bass sound (808) came from rap and hip hop! So get the LP, listen and take a trip down memory lane!

Recess is an interesting departure from the typical Skrillex music we're used to. That's not a bad thing at all because the album has a lot of tight songs. I'd recommend listening to the songs first (on YouTube maybe) before you buy so you get a feel for the album because if you're expecting something like Bangarang, you may feel let down.

It's not my favorite Skrillex album but it's a fun one to listen to once in a while.

I'll let others who care about their opinions being heard wax poetic about their feelings on the album. Too many people try to pigeonhole this style of music into different sub-genres and then scream when the artist deviates from that style. I enjoyed this album. Skrillex fans and non-Skrillex fans will enjoy this new album....Brostep, Dubstep, Blahblahstep, Derpstep....call it what you want....it's a good listen and fun to dance to. Just listen to it and buy it if you like it. Don't hate. If you don't like it, look elsewhere.

So if you don't know Recess (this CD not the song) is his debut LP (CD). And as Deadmau5 has said in a coffee run vid: "COLLAB CITY!!!" And I don't mean it in a bad way at all!! Sonny got out their and got into the lab and started to experiment with so many new sounds and artist I never knew about. From the Korean rappers CL and Dragon to the Ragga Twins and of course the famous Kill The Noise, he and his friends made one hell of an album.

Although it may not sound completely like his original stuff in no way is that a bad thing! I'm glad he is changing it up and trying something new and adding that Skrillex signature sound/touch to it.

Overall I cannot wait until his future remixes/collabs he been working on!!! And this CD is only a tip of whats to come!!!

Great Album, Great Collabs, Great Producer, Enough Said!!

This is by far Skrillex's most polarizing release. The main criticism I've read is how some of the tracks don't fall into the typical "dubstep" mold. I for one like that fact. Others have also complained that some of the tracks borrows a lot from reggae or that he incorporates more chill step into his musical formula. These arguments may be true but I believe it works which is why I give it four stars.

A true fan of Skrillex would see that he has always dabbled in experimentation. (i.e. "Breakin a Sweat feat. the Doors", Skrillex Orchestral Suite, "First of the Year").

The only reason I give it four stars is due to one track, Doompy Poomp, which just doesn't work for me. Otherwise, another great release.
