  1. 10.0 |   Gig Soup

    Its absolutely enthralling in every sense of the word
    Read Review

  2. 9.1 |   Consequence Of Sound

    If Lopatin’s earlier work sampled new age tones and textures to sinister effect, then G.o.D. scrapes up the rusted edges of the music you listen to in moments of unbridled teen rage

  3. 9.0 |   The 405

    A mesmerizing and constantly rewarding masterpiece that may be the magnum opus of one of our generation's most creative and forward-thinking musicians
    Read Review

  4. 9.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    G.O.D.’s more flamboyant moments are supplemented by pieces that arrange negative space, “breaths” that are essential to highlight the album’s more dramatic movements

  5. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    A sound collage like no other, Garden of Delete finds Lopatin engaging listeners with an album that almost defies description

  6. 8.7 |   Pitchfork

    Strange, moving, hilarious, sometimes pushing the limits of good taste, but always in a way that makes you want to hear more
    Read Review

  7. 8.6 |   Earbuddy

    A bewildering digital maze of vaporwave, glitch and cybernetic rock that will leave the listener in awe

  8. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    GOD isn’t about sensory pleasure. It’s about sensory gluttony, auditory overload, and revelling in the difficulty of its pacing
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Arguably this is Oneohtrix’s anti-ambient record, where rhythm takes centre stage and refuses to be polite
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Here’s a record with the nous to present its smarts with a dash of humility.

  11. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Dissolves into a beautifully arranged and slightly sickly morass of curdled pop tropes, out of which spurt a bodacious riff or glossy rave arpeggio. Print edition only

  12. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    It is a complex beast of shade and mood, and it's Lopatin's best work yet
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    Daniel Lopatin has effectively altered the discourse around electronic music making as leisure or labour, the consumption of productive technologies, what constitutes musical skill – and paradoxically assembled his most enduring work
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   Crack

    Everything overdoses from vocoder sampling and caustic Kronos machine manipulation. There is no context. No reference. Take what you will from it
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   Spin

    In making a record about growing up, Lopatin’s come out on the other side in one mutated piece
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   Clash

    Hyper, aggressive, silly and just-bloody-gorgeous, it's a perfect microcosm of the album as a whole
    Read Review

  17. 8.0 |   All Music

    Some of Lopatin's most intellectually engaging music as well as some of his funniest, darkest, and most catharti
    Read Review

  18. 8.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Garden of Delete, Lopatin's seventh full-length album takes his vision to its most thrilling extremes yet
    Read Review

  19. 8.0 |   NOW

    One of the more unique, powerful recordings to come out this year. It's uncomfortable but distinctly compelling
    Read Review

  20. 7.8 |   Resident Advisor

    That OPN can still sound wholly original while engaging with the mainstream reiterates the strength of vision that brought him to this point
    Read Review

  21. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    This is a record with the depth to match Lopatin’s considerable ambitions, one that applies his crate-digger instincts to a higher purpose
    Read Review

  22. 7.0 |   music OMH

    When the dust settles, this may not be the album that captures all that is best about Lopatin’s work, but it may well be the one that sees him at last embraced by a wider audience
    Read Review

  23. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Garden of Delete is another adventure watching your own sense of subjectivity drown in a pool of confusion

  25. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Lopatin's most cogent record yet. Print edition only
