Album Review: Odesza - "In Return" (6/10)

ODESZAArtworkThis electronic duo’s sophomore CD is a rare case of an album that is good, but sadly just isn’t good enough. While the release is certainly a nice 13-track journey through a chillwave landscape, it isn’t groundbreaking and the songs just end up sounding monotonous. Worthy tracks include “Say My Name” (the clear standout and possible party anthem) and “It’s Only,” both featuring Zyra, “All We Need” featuring Shy Girls, and “White Lies” featuring Jenni Potts. Unfortunately, the rest of the album is not worth repeated listens.
