Album Review: The Last Goodbye by ODESZA

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

Exclaim - 80
Based on rating 8/10

After five years, the icosahedron is ready to descend one more time, but is there ever really a last goodbye? If you're asking Seattle-based electronic duo ODESZA, the short answer is no. The long answer is more complicated. In early 2022, Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight startled fans by teasing new music -- it turned out to be the title track of their new album, "The Last Goodbye," formally featuring Bettye LaVette, using a sample of her 1965 single "Let Me Down Easy" -- alongside a video of home movies, ending with a child waving "bye-bye" to the camera.

Opinion: Very Good

Electronic music is perhaps at its most transcendent when it successfully communicates a feeling or emotion that we would otherwise find difficult expressing with words. And while the art-form has built and continues to build upon itself, in true post-modern fashion, it is rare to find a contemporary dance release that both revels in its own nostalgia, and simultaneously exists on the forefront of sonic innovation. Achieving this equilibrium is what perhaps best characterises ODESZA's fourth and most recent studio instalment 'The Last Goodbye'.
