deadmau5 has taken the #1 spot on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart with his new release, while (1<2). The Canadian DJ also grabbed the #9 spot on the Billboard 200 and placed 4th on the Digital Albums chart. Having received mostly positive reviews from both fans and critics alike, this news isn’t terribly surprising, but it’s still great to hear.
Despite what you think about him as a person, deadmau5 is one of the most exciting musicians out there and continues to impress audiences with each new album he drops. while (1<2) might be a bit too experimental at times for my liking, but it’s still an ambitious and mature piece of work that show definite progress from the DJ. Highlights include, for me at least, Phantoms Can’t Hang, Pets, Mercedes and Seeya, but there should be something on here for everyone.
