Overview

Having apparently contracted the neo-electro, indie-dance fever that was so contagious in 2009, the usually trance producer and stadium DJ Ti�sto pulls out some surprises with his fourth effort, Kaleidoscope, a diverse album guided by its rangy guest list. The most surprising (and the most successful) collaboration is placed right up front, when Sigur R�s vocalist J�nsi and a nostalgic Ti�sto conjure the spirit of Tangerine Dream for an electronic, meditative title track that captivates for seven-and-a-half minutes. It's the album's creative high point and Ti�sto's most risky cut to date, but the alternative dance and indie ideas don't stop here, as Australia's Sneaky Sound System bounce between soul and Kate Bush-like drama for the great club track "I Will Be Here." Calvin Harris brings more retro ('80s-flavored this time) and some humor ("Now put your hands in the air/For a century") to the party, while Bloc Party singer Kele Okereke offers some convincing art-pop heartbreak on the memorable "It's Not the Things You Say." Longtime fans get a handful of widescreen instrumentals plus familiar-sounding, straight dance tracks with Nelly Furtado plus Tilly and the Wall member Kianna Alarid. An overstuffed track list makes this otherwise accessible album a bit too cumbersome, but with a little editing, Kaleidoscope is an unexpected and satisfying step forward from a producer who could have racked up the big numbers by sticking with his proven formula.
