"Of all the albums that rock-star spawn have released lately, singer-guitarist Dhani Harrison's first full-length may be the most experimental. There's no denying the vocal and melodic similarities between his duo Thenewno2 and his late father, George Harrison. But on You Are Here, Harrison and multi-instrumentalist Oliver Hecks take what they've borrowed from the Beatles, Brian Eno and Massive Attack in new directions, combining musique concrète, backward recordings and ambient synth flourishes into pop gems like "Back to You." The result is a subtle mix of gentle vocals and electronics, with layered beats, throbbing bass and occasional wailing guitar. From the loud and liberating ("Yomp") to the airy and psychedelic ("Hiding Out"), it's a promising debut." - Rolling Stone
