Album Review: Zomby - Dedication * * *

The dubstep producer, beloved of Radiohead, has delivered a frustrating album that only sporadically hints at his abilities. All too often, his downbeat, fragmentary tunes fail to take hold -- the effect resembles a movie soundtrack that struggles to exist out of context.
Yet, there are moments that show why the enigmatic musician generates such excitement: Things Fall Apart is an absorbing collaboration with Animal Collective's Noah Lennox, while Natalia's Song sounds like an outtake from dubstep's most perfect album Burial's Untrue.
