Disclosure - 'Caracal'

8/10

After releasing their debut album 'Settle' back in 2013, Disclosure became the name that was responsible for making dance music cool again. Their silky production mixed with a garage and 2-step influence was a game-changer for music at that time and brought with it a huge resurge within the genre. Now onto album number two and it is clear that the brothers don't want to be known simply as another house act.

While the debut album did stretch itself musically in places, it seems extremely safe when compared to 'Caracal', which seems more focused on a general vibe than a structured BPM. Once again filling the record with exceptional guest vocalists, which this time include The Weeknd, Lorde, Kwabs and old friend Sam Smith, the album seems to be searching for more of an RnB sound as each track adds more and more soul to itself and generally being just a little lighter on the ears than before.

It may not be the Disclosure we are familiar with, but it is quite an exceptional return. The quality of their beats is still second to none as this new release once again shows exactly why these two were such a big deal two years ago.
