Composed, according to FlyLo, as ''a collage of mystical states, dreams, sleep and lullabies'', Until the Quiet Comes has the distinct feel of this nocturnal trip. From the twitching descent into a subconscious state and the out-of-focus time-ether of the journey that follows, the sound is an unhinged, yet elegant evolution of the melodic and rhythmic interplay that is woven into the DNA of Flying Lotus' aural personae. The album, featuring guests Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, Thundercat & Thom Yorke, is set for release on October 2. UTQC is fueled by FlyLo's first ever full US Tour, multiple videos, creative visual assets and massive support from his ever-growing group of press and fans. Notable followers include Odd Future (Earl Sweatshirt collaboration with Adult Swim online now), Schoolboy Q (who's been in the studio) and rising super-producer Clams Casino.

Unlike Cosmogramma, Until the Quiet Comes doesn't tend to show off. The beats are fairly minimalistic - there are multiple things going on but if you want you can pick each individual beat or groove out easily. It gives the beats air to grow in, like planting a flower and watching it bloom because there aren't any leaves blocking its light.
Until the Quiet Comes is best when you listen to it straight through. I liked Cosmogramma specifically because I would put it on and not hear most of it - I would be doing something while listening to it and would occasionally tune it out. But at the end of the CD I always felt better, somehow. I would notice it was off not by the absence of sound, but by the bad mood that came with its absence.
I smiled after this CD was finished. I'd been lulled into not analyzing certain parts - I think that's by design. The high points are very high, and the low points don't exist.
If you like electronica or whichever of the many genres FlyLo fits into, you should pick up this album. He's the only artist, at this point, whi's gotten to the point where I instantly buy his CD's.
I'd say my favorite tracks, in order of appearance on the album, are All In, Getting There, All The Secrets, Putty Boy Strut [the video is also fantastic], Hunger [the section after 2:22], me Yesterday//Corded, and Dream to Me.
This album seemed like it was an even further distillation of an emotional idea. The problem with rating electronic music that people fall into all too often is that its easily, perhaps like rock, to worry about the athleticism of the gutarists, how many chords he can bust out in a minute, how fast and accurately a drummer can drum, whether the band puts on a great stage show of the singer doing backflips, swallowing swords, breathing fire, etc. and with electronic music it seems like people complain rather quickly if something's not happening in the music that's a brand new production trick or something that really wows on technical merit or complexity.
I actually liked it a lot, it seemed incredibly lucid in terms of emotionally knowing what he wanted to get out of his mixes. The way I tend to rate electronic music is how well a picture conveys a thousand words or how well a tune conveys a thousand pictures. Stuff that drills deep, goes archetypal, that's the kind of thing that gets me going - ie. its real, its gritty, there's something in it where they reached quite a ways deeper into their own minds than most people are used to.
I'd still argue that this is another step forward along FL's path of expression. It's very much an aural DXM trip, even more intensely psychedelic than his past work while staying thoughtful and observant as always. Will be great to see what he comes up with next. For me though, as someone who grew up in the rave scene from 1997 forward and particularly in dark drum & bass - the communication of the music and what's communicated as well as how well an album makes something like a stellar dj set means more to me than whether or not FL did something that absolutely knocked the socks off the world as having never been done before; in 2013 that's getting pretty damn hard for anyone to come up with.
That said I'm happy enough to find an artist who can emotionally and spiritually keep me interested. I'll stick with circus soleil for juggling and fire-breathing entertainment.
When comparing to the first album, I think this one ventures even more into the uncharted realm of electronica where the first record still had some semblance of a consistent back beat and some even radio-friendly tracks (dare I say). I couldn't find any tracks on this album that stood out separately as 'And the world laughs with you.....' and 'Do the Astral Plane' did on the first album. I think this one flows a little better because of it. Overall, though, it's difficult to really highlight major differences given the uniqueness of all Flying Lotus' music.
I look forward to much more groundbreaking sound from this artist.
Top international reviews
Für mich insgesamt eine der besten Veröffentlichungen der 2010er Jahre.
Zum Vinyl lässt sich noch sagen dass es sich hierbei um die normale 2x12“ 180gr. Variante ohne Gatefold Cover handelt. Alles in allem top verarbeitet as usual.
doch nicht genug damit, es fällt weder hinter der düster-hiphop-affinen Los Angeles noch der fordernd-komplexen cosmogramma, welche ich beide als Meilensteine im Bereich instrumentaler Beat-Musik bezeichne zurück, wirkt aber fröhlicher und verträumter als bekannte Vorgänger und definitiv leichter zugänglich als die etwas sperrige (doch deshalb nicht minder geniale) Comsmogramma, wobei Flylo seinem Stil treu bleibt und immer wieder mit neuen Überraschungen für den Hörer aufwartet. Immer noch nichts für den Hintergrund sowie Rauspicken einzelner Lieder, sondern ein Album für ruhige Stunden in denen man sich bereitwillig auf eine Reise vom ersten bis zum letzten Ton begibt und entsprechend mit einzigartigen Soundlandschaften belohnt wird. Volle 5 Punkte...
Allein das Cover würde schon den Kauf lohnen, absolut edel und hochwertig. Passende Verpackung...
C'est donc pour moi l'un des plus accessible de sa discographie! (Pour une découverte de l'artiste sans danger, je vous le recommande)
