Disclosure - Caracal

Disclosure grabs me more than many other electronic acts do. “Settle” was one of my favorite albums of 2014. It was so good, it somehow made other electronic albums I'd previously dismissed sound better and worthy of further listens. Seriously. “Caracal” is good, it has it's moments that grab me, but not nearly as often as “Settle” does. There are more guest appearances, and at times they overshadow the great work at the core of the Disclosure music happening. Friends of mine that don't listen to EDM find this to be a good thing, as they like the more accessible nature of the songs. That makes sense – which just further leaves me on the fence about this album. Credit where credit is due: the track featuring Lorde is stellar.

Verdict: Stream it
Highlights: Magnets, Nocturnal
