His intelligent and innovative approach to songwriting frequently surpasses the repetitive structure of his inspirations, offering a fresh reminder of what made synthwave great in the first place.”

Rating: 77 / 100 “There’s no denying the technical skill and innovation displayed on Monochrome, which is consistently high throughout the recording, though the album’s brilliance is occasionally curbed by minimal verse compositions, a syrup-glazed vocal delivery, and reliance on uncomplicated hooks. Monochrome reveals its boldest colors when the instrumental compositions are allowed to speak for themselves.”
