IQ Test

    Bad mix, too vocal heavy. We listen to Tycho to be carried out to sea on a buoyant sonic canoe where the tonal, wordless melodies grant clarity through their endless individualized interpretations. This album, however, sinks fast with its lazy, contrived, and claustrophobic heft, and, if not a total wreck, at best keeps us moored solidly at bay. Where we eventually become landlocked and hollow. Not only are the vocal sounds overly whispered in an unnatural, faux levity, they are laid down entirely too hard. Don’t use softness to yell. Don’t drown out the music, don’t drown us. The few instrumental tracks are passable, such as Into the Woods, but songs like Japan with the aforementioned boring bland Saint Sinner are rendered worse with lyrics akin to middle schooler returning from their first overseas travel experience. In short: Tycho fans, don’t buy.

    Love Tycho, love this album. The vocals aren’t anything to write home about, but man this album is great! I’ve been jamming to it for a few days and loving it. Was surprised the vocals bothered so many people. I’ve been a Tycho fan for years, and this numbers among his best work in my book.

    I still really like Tycho,. but much prefer the tracks without Saint Sinner's contributions and only purchased those two. I am still a Tycho fan, but Dive and Awake remain my favorite albums.

    Mr. Great music, but vocals just don't work. So little good instrumental music, Tycho was the best. Hoping he returns to instrumental next alburm, I'll be skipping this one.

    Some songs with lyrics work. Japan is a standout track in my opinion. Some are pretty good, and others don't land. But... glad Scott is experimenting and not falling into a rut. Also, if Weather is the direction for what comes next per the artist notes, bring it. :-)

    I dig it. Reading these other reviews about the lyrics is infuriating. Great voice and yeah sometimes artists change it up a bit to grow. I don’t want the same album 6 times over.

    HUGE fan. Not of this.. I've been a MASSIVE fan of Tycho for years. My go to electronic, hands down. And there's nothing like standing in the Steve Jobs theater listening to Tycho echo through it. But this ... c'mon. The vocal tracks don't fit whatsoever.

    Hard to like this one. I have been a Tycho fan for years, and have seen him on every tour through NYC. I already purchased tickets for the September concert in Central Park. But I’m really disappointed in Weather. I appreciate Scott’s desire to grow his sound, and maybe go a different direction. But the result is not the Tycho I was hoping for. The lyrics detract for me, and while the notes say he wanted to treat lyrics like an instrument, they don’t have that effect on me. Maybe he didn’t have to go all “Cocteau Twins”, but this sounds like weak dream pop. I wished he’d made this a side project, with a different name. Also, an “album” that’s less than 30 minutes long??? I have a feeling the new label talked him into this so they could sell us a deluxe instrumental version later. So sad if that’s true. At the moment, I’m probably going to skip the Central Park concert, but will read tour reviews of prior stops to see the set list.

    Vocals?. Slamming head on table. Vocals and ambient electronic music do not mix in most (not all) cases. If I wanted vocals I’d turn on the radio. I’ll wait for the next album and hopefully he will get back to basics.

    Vocals...not for me. The one thing I like most about Tycho is the lack of vocals. The music stands on its own and up until now, didn't disappoint. To me, Tycho is an instrumental group. This should've been a separate project, not a Tycho release. I sincerely appreciate Tycho putting out new music, but I hope and pray the next album has no vocals. Guess I'm back to listening to Awake and Epoch on repeat until the next instrumental album comes out.

    Words Do Not Express .... Sweetish music but so sorry to see him wander off his unique instrumental island niche into the Big Pond of Dreamy Vocal Mediocrity. It may have felt good making it but the result puts the album into Where’s Waldo Hiding Territory. Hope he finds his way back.

    WEATHER 🌎. I love absolutely love this album. I feel like Tycho has been leading up to this moment where the fascinating ambient and organic sound combines with the human voice, and it does so excellently. Saint sinner is so so good and I’m so glad this album turned out exactly the way it did. I know some people are turned off by the vocals, but give it some time and be open minded. I really liked it right away because I like that kind of sound, since Saint Sinner has a very airy and roomy voice. For How Long is my favorite.

    Ignore the bad reviews. If you like Tycho, I can't see why you wouldn't like the new album. Sure, it's somewhat different--it has vocals . . . Just enjoy it. He's an artist; let an artist explore--this isn't even branching out that far--it still sounds just like Tycho. If you don't want vocals, listen to his other albums, or, likely, wait for the next. Saint Sinner's voice is nice and soothing and weaves well as another instrument to Hansen's synth. Good work by both. Some folks giving reviews just need to stop being haters. Smile sometimes :)

    I will always support Tycho. The music that speaks beyond vocals has added vocals... I am not on board 100% here. I love every Tycho album but I can’t say the same here. I will always support Tycho and the evolving sound, but the sound already has its own story to tell without lyrics. In regards to adding lyrics, it would seem the sound and it’s story are muddied. This would have been better perceived as the vocalists album with Tycho-esque loops in the background.

    Bëåûtîfûł. As always. First time I ever herd tycho was around the same time my life took a pretty chaotic shift. He brought calmness and tranquility into my life and every time I hear a song by him I know immediately that it’s tycho, the overwhelming feeling of euphoria that washes over me when I hear this music is a feeling and sound I will always recognize and cherish. Thank you so much for your music. Peace and love ✌🏼💙

    Vocals. Sad. One of the most enjoyable bands around produced a record with vocals (ugh) done by someone who can’t sing. She’s probably a friend or his girlfriend. If you are going to recruit a singer, make it Mariah Carey.

    It’s all Love. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to & watching Scott’s artistic journey as a musical artist & graphic designer. I think we all have to have an open mind to what avenues he wants to explore. Thank you Scott for sharing with us another chapter in the Tycho saga. Enjoying Weather. :)

    Sonic Progress. Initially was hesitant about the additional of vocals, but I think it’s safe to say that this is the natural direction to follow after 4 instrumental albums. Some of the lyrics are hard to understand but they blend well with the instrumental. Would like to see where things go from here

    Saint Sinner Takes it to another level. Unlike many of the other reviews, I welcome the soft/ unique sound of Saint Sinner to the ambient production. I think its a great match in tone and plays very well together. I see this as an Evolution for Tycho, and a good one at that.

    Slippin': First less-than-stellar review for Tycho. JULY 12 UPDATE --> Vocals wear thin despite some high points; timewise an album should be longer than 29-30 mins, but at least the title track "Weather" channels the best of Tycho's instrumental style. Looking fwd to the the live show yet sorry to say this is Tycho's weakest album to date /// OLDER REVIEW (before full release) --> Long-time Tycho fan since Past is Prologue (gave previous albums 5 stars, seen 4 live shows) -- I'll update this review when the full LP drops, but so far I hear an irritating dissonance between the vocals and instrumentals. Despite a skilled attempt, the vox/lyrics on "Pink & Blue" have less dynamic cohesion than Epoch, and the instrumental version of this single is better. Navel-gazing, common rhymes coupling "diet" and "quiet" were corny and derailed the song. Tycho's sound envelopes when it conjures an effervescent sense of movement, time, mystery, and existential chiaroscuro; in the new "lead singer" format, too many lyrics kill the vibe. I also think Tycho's *at least* 2 songs and 10 minutes short of a true album-length LP here. If it weren't for Rory the drummer, it would receive 2 stars.

    I don't believe Tycho can fail. He delivers under his own euphoric, chill, atmospheric and mello sound yet again. No wonder this guy inspired Ryan Farish.

    Short and incomplete.. Bought this album yesterday and I’m hoping it will grow on me soon. So far, that is not happening, and the new female singer sounds like she quickly wrote some lyrics and decided to sing. The album feels short and incomplete. Tycho is still the man, regardless.

    Well Done Tycho. I was skeptical about the songs with vocals but after listening to the album a dozen times this morning my mind is changed for the better. No Stress is absolutely amazing and beautiful. I can’t wait for the instrumental LP for all the songs to drop, but in the mean time I am 100% in love with Weather and will always be in love with Tycho. Well done friend.

    Love it!. I’ve been a Tycho fan through and through since Past is Prologue, and absolutely love this album so far. Yes, it’s different than his other stuff but still has many of the same uniquely distinct Tycho sounds and riffs that make his stuff so great. There isn’t a single album that I can’t listen to straight through and I think this one will be the same!
  • Philippeucnj

    Still keep me captivated, nonetheless. I wanted to share my thoughts after the entire album was released! I’m forever a fan of your inspirational brilliance and how you create music that speaks volumes without vocals! Unfortunately, the vocals I feel take away from TYCHO-your signature DNA sound. “EASY” has a touch of electronic vocalizing which is perfect and it creates just enough depth, dynamic, and air. Anything else starts to deflect from your DNA and looses the euphoric punch. Only bought 3 songs; of course the ones without the new vocalist. Nonetheless, I do embrace change and admire the courage to EVOLVE as an artist no matter who or what is said. May I suggest to not deflect from your signature sound which is unparalleled and what got me from the beginning in the first place! Lol Much love and best wishes, sincerely

    Disappointing new direction. I know artists need to change and grow, and they need to follow their own muse, not what the fans demand. I just wonder where this new direction is coming from. Scott & co. may acquire a huge new fan base from this but at the expense of the fans who got him this far. At least I’ll always have the old albums. They’re some of my favorite music of the 21st century. (Update: I've changed my review from one to two stars, because I do think the music is OK. I'll probably just end up buying the instrumental versions of each of the songs and spending way more than I would have on the whole album!)

    Open to new direction - instrumental bonus album?. I agree with many of the people who wrote their reviews about the vocals and I also agree about Tychos exploration with new territory. I’m getting strange vibes about this Saint-Sinner girl but I’m getting the sense that there’s a reason why Scott chose her to be the vocalist and wanted to feature her on so many songs. Regardless of trends, personalities and preferences, here we are with a new release coming out very soon! All in all, this is a new path that they are exploring and the loyal fan base he has developed will with choose to stay or cone back again when they choose to. I’m proud of Scott for doing something different. And... there’s something powerful with staying with the type of sound that he has created from the getgo. Scott - there’s a reason why you are doing what you are doing. Good job for following your heart. Keep yo the great work!

    Different, and I like it.. For those complaining about the vocals, the songs on this album are being released instrumentally as well. I for one think the vocals are perfect for the tone of this album and I already know I’ll be listening to it on many late night drives and rainy days.

    quit hating because of vocals. people are really giving my boy one star reviews because there’s vocals... that’s stupid. actually listen to the music and judge it for what it is. just because he wanted to try something different doesn’t mean we should punish him for it. im still giving this album a chance. if you really can’t because there’s lyrics, then you’re just immature.

    I Like It. People are acting like Tycho is McDonald’s and he got your order wrong. “I ordered no vocals!” Art is subjective and it’s ok if you don’t like it. It doesn’t mean your subjective opinion is an objective standard for everyone else to comply with. I don’t know why artists want to make anything at all anymore with people complaining about everything they put out. And I don’t think it’s about putting a precedence on quality, it’s about people being conditioned by consumer capitalism and treating art like you’re ordering a McDouble. It’s fine if you don’t like it and express that but you have no right to be offended that it’s not what you wanted. If you don’t like it, don’t listen to it or go make your own music. My opinion is that I like the variation of adding vocals but I’m also enjoying the instrumental version of Japan. I think the vocals fit well on the top end of the mix and compliments Tycho’s sound. I also think it would be cool if Tycho released an instrumental version of the whole album along with the vocal album so we get the best of both.

    not a fan of the vocals. I'll chime in here as well... I'm not digging the vocals. The Pink & Blue instrumental version sounds like Tycho, the vocal version is just meh. The vocals are mixed so loud, the backing band becomes hidden, you don't really hear the song. I was previously looking forward to a new Tycho album, now I'll probably just grab the individual tracks and skip the vinyl this time around.

    Weather. I loved Tyco's music but the vocalizing is such a negative, I won't buy anything further. This also ruined other good songs by them. Sorry but I think this is a wrong direction for them and as I have everything else they have recorded I felt I needed to say something. I also see many other fans seem to have simular opinons about the vocalizing.

    Tired of sleepy dopey vocalists but the music is good. Love the music scores and the songs but I am so done, done! with sleepy dopey doey eyed vocalists that border on whispering and contemplation. Sing the stuff and put some umpf into it instead of boring us toward never listening again. Tycho has had some great music in the past year or two and this is not a deal breaker however it is also not my vocalist tastes.

I’m forever a fan of your inspirational brilliance and how you create music that speaks volumes without vocals! Unfortunately, the vocals I feel take away from TYCHO-your signature DNA sound. “EASY” has a touch of electronic vocalizing which is perfect and it creates just enough depth, dynamic, and air. Anything else starts to deflect from your DNA and looses the euphoric punch. Only bought 3 songs; of course the ones without the new vocalist. Nonetheless, I do embrace change and admire the courage to EVOLVE as an artist no matter who or what is said. May I suggest to not deflect from your signature sound which is unparalleled and what got me from the beginning in the first place! Lol Much love and best wishes, sincerely

    Tycho’s best work. This album is magical. The addition of vocals bring it to the next level.

    Disappointing new direction. I know artists need to change and grow, and they need to follow their own muse, not what the fans demand. I just wonder where this new direction is coming from. Scott & co. may acquire a huge new fan base from this but at the expense of the fans who got him this far. At least I’ll always have the old albums. They’re some of my favorite music of the 21st century. (Update: I've changed my review from one to two stars, because I do think the music is OK. I'll probably just end up buying the instrumental versions of each of the songs and spending way more than I would have on the whole album!)

    Open to new direction - instrumental bonus album?. I agree with many of the people who wrote their reviews about the vocals and I also agree about Tychos exploration with new territory. I’m getting strange vibes about this Saint-Sinner girl but I’m getting the sense that there’s a reason why Scott chose her to be the vocalist and wanted to feature her on so many songs. Regardless of trends, personalities and preferences, here we are with a new release coming out very soon! All in all, this is a new path that they are exploring and the loyal fan base he has developed will with choose to stay or cone back again when they choose to. I’m proud of Scott for doing something different. And... there’s something powerful with staying with the type of sound that he has created from the getgo. Scott - there’s a reason why you are doing what you are doing. Good job for following your heart. Keep yo the great work!

    Different, and I like it.. For those complaining about the vocals, the songs on this album are being released instrumentally as well. I for one think the vocals are perfect for the tone of this album and I already know I’ll be listening to it on many late night drives and rainy days.

    quit hating because of vocals. people are really giving my boy one star reviews because there’s vocals... that’s stupid. actually listen to the music and judge it for what it is. just because he wanted to try something different doesn’t mean we should punish him for it. im still giving this album a chance. if you really can’t because there’s lyrics, then you’re just immature.

    I Like It. People are acting like Tycho is McDonald’s and he got your order wrong. “I ordered no vocals!” Art is subjective and it’s ok if you don’t like it. It doesn’t mean your subjective opinion is an objective standard for everyone else to comply with. I don’t know why artists want to make anything at all anymore with people complaining about everything they put out. And I don’t think it’s about putting a precedence on quality, it’s about people being conditioned by consumer capitalism and treating art like you’re ordering a McDouble. It’s fine if you don’t like it and express that but you have no right to be offended that it’s not what you wanted. If you don’t like it, don’t listen to it or go make your own music. My opinion is that I like the variation of adding vocals but I’m also enjoying the instrumental version of Japan. I think the vocals fit well on the top end of the mix and compliments Tycho’s sound. I also think it would be cool if Tycho released an instrumental version of the whole album along with the vocal album so we get the best of both.

    not a fan of the vocals. I'll chime in here as well... I'm not digging the vocals. The Pink & Blue instrumental version sounds like Tycho, the vocal version is just meh. The vocals are mixed so loud, the backing band becomes hidden, you don't really hear the song. I was previously looking forward to a new Tycho album, now I'll probably just grab the individual tracks and skip the vinyl this time around.

    Weather. I loved Tyco's music but the vocalizing is such a negative, I won't buy anything further. This also ruined other good songs by them. Sorry but I think this is a wrong direction for them and as I have everything else they have recorded I felt I needed to say something. I also see many other fans seem to have simular opinons about the vocalizing.

    Tired of sleepy dopey vocalists but the music is good. Love the music scores and the songs but I am so done, done! with sleepy dopey doey eyed vocalists that border on whispering and contemplation. Sing the stuff and put some umpf into it instead of boring us toward never listening again. Tycho has had some great music in the past year or two and this is not a deal breaker however it is also not my vocalist tastes.

Tycho - Weather Album Wiki

Weather is the state of the atmosphere, describing for example the degree to which it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy. Most weather phenomena occur in the lowest level of the atmosphere, the troposphere, just below the stratosphere. Weather refers to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the averaging of atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time. When used without qualification, "weather" is generally understood to mean the weather of Earth. Weather is driven by air pressure, temperature and moisture differences between one place and another. These differences can occur due to the sun's angle at any particular spot, which varies with latitude. The strong temperature contrast between polar and tropical air gives rise to the largest scale atmospheric circulations: the Hadley Cell, the Ferrel Cell, the Polar Cell, and the jet stream. Weather systems in the mid-latitudes, such as extratropical cyclones, are caused by instabilities of the jet stream flow. Because the Earth's axis is tilted relative to its orbital plane, sunlight is incident at different angles at different times of the year. On Earth's surface, temperatures usually range ±40 °C (−40 °F to 100 °F) annually. Over thousands of years, changes in Earth's orbit can affect the amount and distribution of solar energy received by the Earth, thus influencing long-term climate and global climate change. Surface temperature differences in turn cause pressure differences. Higher altitudes are cooler than lower altitudes, as most atmospheric heating is due to contact with the Earth's surface while radiative losses to space are mostly constant. Weather forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a future time and a given location. The Earth's weather system is a chaotic system; as a result, small changes to one part of the system can grow to have large effects on the system as a whole. Human attempts to control the weather have occurred throughout history, and there is evidence that human activities such as agriculture and industry have modified weather patterns. Studying how the weather works on other planets has been helpful in understanding how weather works on Earth. A famous landmark in the Solar System, Jupiter's Great Red Spot, is an anticyclonic storm known to have existed for at least 300 years. However, weather is not limited to planetary bodies. A star's corona is constantly being lost to space, creating what is essentially a very thin atmosphere throughout the Solar System. The movement of mass ejected from the Sun is known as the solar wind..
