Last night, it happened: Skrillex flipped the script on the EDM scene, giving fans a free preview of his long-awaited debut album Recess via the Alien Ride app that he had just given away a few days prior. It felt like an event, and fans seem to be split on the project. Some of it feels like a return to form, while other bits feel like Skrillex has expounded on the experimentation that he's been hinting at over the last few years. With a fresh set of ears, ones that aren't continuously screaming "OMG! OMG!" and "WE WERE RIGHT!," DAD wanted to give you guys a track-by-track review of what's already shaping up to be one of the most talked-about albums of 2014. So fire up your Alien Ride apps, stream along, and check out our thoughts on Recess.
