Gotye's eclectic mixture of pop, electronic, reggae, jazz, etc., will leave you breathless, but satisfied at the end of it. His heart-tugging 'Heart's a Mess' will leave you wanting to hear more of his 'desperate to connect' angst. His playful, yet true 'Thanks For Your Time' is just catchy and fun. The dark, obsessive "The Only Thing I Know" is stunning lyrically. All 11 songs on this CD are amazing works of art.
If you were captured by Wally de Backer's talent on Making Mirrors, you will indeed enjoy his earlier work, Like Drawing Blood.
