AllMusic Review by

Sirens, the third album from Nicolas Jaar, falls somewhere between the contemplative microhouse of first album Space Is Only Noise (2011) and the glossier follow-up Pomegranates (2015). Introduced with the haunting 11-minute track "Killing Time," Jaar integrates new elements into his sound, from the synth pop of "Three Sides of Nazareth" to the jungle of "The Governor." The continuous presence of vocals makes it Jaar's most emotional work yet, opening the door to a wider audience.
