Daniel Lopatin's ninth album as Oneohtrix Point Never takes stock of his career to date, surveying the mix of influences that landed him on his current pedestal. It draws on his childhood and teenage experience with FM radio. At its best, American radio is a bizarre and varied scrum worthy of romanticizing. There are stunning moments on Magic Oneohtrix Point Never. Having fully graduated into the rarified world of scoring and pop production, Lopatin is a proven master of mood and pacing. He also has a deep well of tricks and stylistic signatures. Even when he's trying his hand at drum-machine pop-punk ("I Don't Love Me Anymore") or synth-pop nu metal ("Lost But Never Alone"), he manages to sound only like himself. "Imago" looks back to one of his best records, 2011's Replica. The brief track starts with sampled spoken-word cutups, then introduces doleful synth and piano. Near the end comes the pièce de résistance, a gorgeous, accomplished string and winds arrangement worthy of Ryuichi Sakamoto.
