Boomkat Product Review:
Danny Lopatin turns in a redux of "Magic Oneohtrix Point Never" closer 'Nothing's Special', adding a vocal from Catalan singer Rosalía who elevates the original, gifting the smoky sensuality it sorely lacked. More than just nostalgic radio pop, it's delicate, romantic and new.
'Nothing's Special' was the highlight of an uneven album and truly comes into its own here. Those gorgeous synth chords stand alone now without the awkward Auto-Tuned vocals, and when Rosalía's distinctive vocals peel out like church bells it feels like a match made in gilded cathedral halls.
The cosmique synth-corrupted loveliness of Lopatin's early material is left to bleed thru, and with Rosalía at the helm we're left with defiantly contemporary pop music that sounds like nothing else out there. Theatrical, magical stuff - more please!
