10 Songs, 30 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

“When you put Lab and Sia in a room, it’s the craziest concoction,” Diplo told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe. “Two of the most creative people I’ve ever met, like in a boxing match: bam-bam-bam-bam!” Following hits like “Thunderclouds” and “Mountains,” the A-list supergroup—made up of visionary songwriter/producers Labrinth and Diplo alongside the extraordinary Sia—present their first collaborative full-length of shape-shifting, hyperactive pop. Full of left turns and flamboyant instrumental flair, the songs here value largesse: You can hear Diplo’s dancehall rhythms, Sia’s dramatic balladry, and Labrinth’s taste for oddball pairings like gospel-inspired choruses over skittering trap breaks. The intro track, “Welcome to the Wonderful World Of,” swirls together chopped vocals, Jock Jams synths, dizzying digital pings, and a grinding bassline—an amuse-bouche for what follows. It's not quite the vision quest the name suggests; with catchy hooks, soaring melodies, and an appearance from Lil Wayne, the project is closer to classic pop. But it's just strange enough to open a door: Mainstream music just got a little bit weirder.

Daaaamn

To be completely honest, I’ve never heard anything like this. LSD ventured into a new area of music that I never knew existed, but it turns out I really like it. This mixture of heavenly vocals from Sia and Labyrinth and incredible production from Diplo created one of my favorite albums I’ve heard in the past few years. Shame it’s so short though...

A whimsical wonder for the ears

I dare say this is the most colorful album I’ve ever heard. It’s the most interesting album of the years so far for me 🌈⚡️🍭🦄
