****
As a follow-up to Like Drawing Blood, I had high hopes for this. Having heard it a few times now, I'm finding it slightly underwhelming, but still good. "Somebody That I Used To Know" is an obvious highlight and showcases much of what can be heard on the rest of the album. As a positive, while still heavily sample-based, it's more subtle than its predecessor and less jarring on the ears. There's plenty of goodness to be heard, but it is a little top heavy.
****
Quite a good album, Standouts for me are Eyes Wide Open, Save Me, Somebody That I Used To Know & I Feel Better.
*****
Solid album, not as underwhelming as I was expecting. 4.5*
*****
A very cool and a different sound to the album then I thought it would be . Some standout songs from the album were Easy Way Out , Somebody That I Used To Know and Eyes Wide Open . Just a 5 for me, and also I would like to mention that this album is a great aussie album!

****
Quite a cool album with some very interesting sounds and great vocals. Though it has a few weaker moments towards the end, it houses Somebody That I Used To Know, and that's just awesome. Also some other very good tracks on here.
******
Nice album!

I didn't have high expectations for this album and it was exactly as I expected it to be. Apart from Eyes Wide Open, Somebody I Used To Know and Save Me the rest of this album is very average and too alternative for my liking. Overall I give this 3.3.
***
Quite an average effort that is luckily saved by the amazing STIUTK. If not for that, this was bound to have been a flop and a relatively boring listen. What I don't get is that Gotye has a really soaring, unique voice, but then some tracks he chooses to go for some weird electronic sound (State Of The Art, Bronte) that really brings down the whole album. They're such non-songs!

All up this is just average. The only other highlight on here is 'Save Me'. 3.5.
