3.0 out of 5 stars Skrillex Seems to be Losing his Appeal. Aug. 19 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those of you who like "old" Skrillex, this may be a miss. It didn't really excite me like his original few EP's did, but I didn't hate the music either.

Worth a shot, not sure if I'd go buy it again though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different is not bad, different is good. March 25 2014
By Hash Dramflash - Published on Amazon.com

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

4.0 out of 5 stars 90's era music mixed with dubstep. March 19 2014
By Death is real - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars New direction with some old skool flava. March 18 2014
By _thon - Published on Amazon.com

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.

Awesome, diffrent from before, but no body does it better than skrillex, all these one star haters, need to move one,it can't always be the same as before, otherwise it gets boring. I mean I'd buy the album just for Try it Out .Stranger is a awesome song.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall disappointing March 28 2014
By Midway 47 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm being pretty generous by giving it 3 stars instead of 2. I'm going to give it a few more listens and give it a chance to grow on me. Afterall, I'm a huge fan of Bangarang and Scary Monsters and the sound quality is good. I just think it sounds uninspired and overall lacking of emotion. Skrillex had so many people help work on the album that it's almost like he lost his identity and dumbed himself down to mediocre level. In most dubstep songs, the vocals are not the focal point but too many songs on Recess are weighed down with vocals. Many of the vocals are just plain annoying, as well. Profanity doesn't usually bug me but a lot of it on this album just seems pointless and elementary. This may be the next big album for a high school party but I think we've all came to expect more than that from Skrillex. I admit, I only listened to a few samples before I bought the album but I didn't think I would need to thoroughly check it out first. At this point, I'd rather just have my money back. I won't make the same mistake on his next album.
