Review: deadmau5 expands sound with sixth studio album

Canadian electro-house performer Joel Zimmerman, better known as deadmau5, has kept up his unoriginal album title theme with his sixth studio album, “> album title goes here <.” After the success of his previous three albums, “Random Album Title,” “For Lack of a Better Name” and “4×4=12,” his newest album was highly anticipated, especially after the release of his EP this summer. As expected, he does not disappoint.

His first single off the album is “The Veldt,” and it is a tribute to the late science fiction writer Ray Bradbury. Based on a short story of the same name, the track embodies the creative spirit and technology Bradbury depicted in his story, with spacey guitar notes and trance-like tones. Chris James, a singer deadmau5 discovered on the Internet this past March, is featured on the track with soothing vocals that soften the track’s euphoric tone.

deadmau5 introduces more collaborations on this album and alters his synthesized melodies to highlight the vocals of his collaborators.

My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way is the star vocalist on the single “Professional Griefers,” which reaches out to the pop-punk scene and creates an overlapping fan base between Way and deadmau5. Way’s aggressive vocals complement deadmau5’s style without completely deterring him from his own genre.

Overall, “> album title goes here <” seems to appeal to every corner of the music industry, broadening deadmau5’s fan base and blasting the button-pushing reputation he’s acquired in his career.

Overall rating: 3 stars
