Album Review: This Is What We Do by Leftfield

Very Good, Based on 1 Critic

musicOMH.com - 70
Based on rating 3.5

There’s an intriguing mixture of old and new on this fourth album, pointing to a creative drive that makes the case for Neil Barnes' continuing relevance into the 2020s On first glance it might seem strange that Leftfield, now the one-man project of Neil Barnes, has built such a legacy off the back of three albums, but the sparse output is key - their contemporaries chugged away into the 2000s and lost all vitality, whereas 2015's Alternative Light Source was well-judged and worth the wait. This Is What We Do sees Barnes reuniting with some old allies and collaborating with newer artists, and drawing from a grab-bag of electronic styles. Speaking of Leftfield's contemporaries, the maximal production of the album's title track bears more than a passing resemblance to The Chemical Brothers, while the following song Full Way Round, featuring Grian Chatten, presents a surreal but enjoyable vision of Fontaines DC as an electroclash group.
