Right off the bat it's hard to classify > Album Title Goes Here < as an EDM album. You won't find your typical bass drops and you will not be pumping your fist to this album. Instead, Deadmau5 gives us a straight dance album, a 2012 Discovery if you will. Keeping Daft Punk's Discovery in mind, this album is not all electronic beats. Deadmau5 has several vocalist appear on the album to give the album a more mainstream feel. The best example of this is the nearly nine minute epic, The Veldt.
With singer Chris James on the vocals, Deadmau5 turns Ray Bradbury's 1951 short story The Veldt into a musical masterpiece. Haunting and yet oddly soothing, Deadmau5 was able to capture the perfect feel for Mr. Bradbury's dark story.
*Note the video version of The Veldt is only 2 minutes and
59 seconds. The fullversion can be heard on the album*
Peaking at number 43, The Veldt did moderately well on Billboard's Dance Chart. It may not be a number one hit, but I believe Deadmau5 is ok with that. He is a man who hides from celebrity and puts out music at his pace. I wouldn't have it any other way.
