  1. 10.0 |   The Skinny

    A visionary artist at the height of his powers, this is in many ways his most accessible and uplifting work so far
    Read Review

  2. 9.1 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    A fascinating and sonically beautiful album
    Read Review

  3. 9.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Might be the first album to crystallize the simultaneous joy and terror inherent in a life of constant connection and constant surveillance
    Read Review

  4. 9.0 |   Beats Per Minute

    After fearless reinventions of sound on three consecutive releases, it’s good to know some things never change
    Read Review

  5. 8.5 |   The 405

    His latest batch of tracks is warm, dizzying and flat-out blissful in places, as on the serene closing track, 'Chrome Country'. It's also multi-layered and intricate, demanding that you give your full attention to it
    Read Review

  6. 8.5 |   The Quietus

    R Plus Seven marks not only an important milestone for Oneohtrix Point Never, but also for the broader historical continuum of electronic music. It's a 'where are we now?' kind of album; at its finest, it aspires to speak to the state-of-the-art

  7. 8.4 |   Pitchfork

    Doesn’t have quite the disembodied weirdness of Replica, but it’s no less accomplished, another intriguing chapter from an artist whose work remains alive with possibility
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    A challenging album, one that doesn’t quite unravel itself on an immediate listen
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   Mojo

    An album of beauty and intrigue. Print edition only

  10. 8.0 |   Clash

    There’s not the melancholy of 2010’s Returnal, nor the conceptual consistency of 2011’s Replica - instead, Lopatin alternates between striking sublimity and inescapable menace
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Instrumental, amorphous, constantly shape-shifting and only keeping to the most shadowy of structures, R Plus Seven is more a collection of atmospheres and moods than anything that can sensibly be organised into “tracks”
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   All Music

    If it's equal parts mystifying and beautiful, it's also a puzzle well worth trying to figure out
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   music OMH

    An album that confounds and enraptures at almost every turn
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Lopatin could have done well by repeating Replica’s inimitable bag of tricks. Wisely, he hasn’t as R Plus Seven is more of a departure than you’d expect, and it’s an excellent one
    Read Review

  15. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Soothing and transportative, and is able to define itself a little bit more with each listen
    Read Review

  16. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    It's holy music, even if wholly weird
    Read Review

  17. 7.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Lopatin has made perhaps his most curious move yet
    Read Review

  18. 7.0 |   Fact

    Musically it may be Oneohtrix Point Never’s most accessible work yet, but the emotional pull it exerts is minimal
    Read Review

  19. 7.0 |   Uncut

    It's disorientating, but thrilling if you lean into the centrifugal force. Print edition only

  20. 6.0 |   Q

    Not exactly immediate, definitely rewarding. Print edition only

  21. 6.0 |   NME

    Kinda hard to love
    Read Review

  22. 5.0 |   Under The Radar

    These computerised structures are a difficult trip to enjoy
