1. Intro - A one-minute track that's less of an intro for the album and more of an opening to "When a Fire Starts To Burn," with its vocal sample pounding on the pulpit about inevitable change over a series of crackling drums.
2. When a Fire Starts To Burn - This banger's title refers to the rhythmically repeated lyric -- delivered by Eric Thomas -- at its sweaty center, but it may very well be a nod to the wildfire-like rapidity in which Guy and Howard Lawrence have found international success. Eschewing pop for at least one song, Disclosure delves into delirious dance.
3. Latch feat. Sam Smith
Credit goes to vocalist Sam Smith for his tremendously uninhibited performance on this baroque electro-pop spectacle, but don't discount Disclosure's wobbling, sinewy production, either. Let's hope these three gents get together for more collaborative wizardry sooner rather than later.
4. F For You - Disclosure excels at cherry-picking vocal turns of phrases that blend with the instrumentation constructed around them -- on the breathlessly stylish "F For You," the assonance of the words "infected," "restless" and "manifested" serves as a lynchpin to the hypnotic verses.
5. White Noise feat. AlunaGeorge
The translucent, capricious beats almost distract from Aluna Francis' vocal turn on this breakout single for both U.K. artists, but the singer seizes control on the chorus, which sashays into full view after a spacey buildup. "You just want to keep me on repeat, and hear me crying," Francis seethes.
6. Defeated No More feat. Ed Macfarlane - The longest song on the album is a sensual slow burn that could stand side-by-side with any of Disclosure's acclaimed singles. Unfussy organ riffs, broiling hi-hats, woozy synths and Friendly Fires singer Macfarlane's ethereal pipes convey a feeling of yearning, and "Defeated No More" is a universal house track throbbing with affection.
7. Stimulation - The album's second movement is less concerned with pop song structure and more playful with its samples. "Stimulation" glides along, harnessed to a menacing baseline and highlighted by multi-pronged percussion that sounds like an uptempo refraction of Burial's "Archangel."
8. Voices feat. Sasha Keable - Picking up where the kinetic "Stimulation" left off, "Voices" finds Sasha Keable painting some jazzy tones into the stars of Disclosure's self-contained world. At times springy and at other times dense, "Voices" sounds like a successful mash-up of two entirely different songs.
9. Second Chance - Disclosure takes Kelis' "Get Along With You" and turns it inside out, taking her plea of "Try me, cause I'd be/The one that makes you happy" and gleefully melting it into scraps. It's a subversive experiment and interesting interlude on the album.
10. Grab Her! - Another inspired sample, this one lifted from a J. Dilla track, is used on "Grab Her!," although Disclosure is less tethered to its vocal snippet here than it is on the preceding track. Instead, the song is pushed forward with hollow beats bouncing in various directions and congealing into a formidable web of sound.
11. You & Me feat. Eliza Doolittle
There's something blindingly sad about Eliza Doolittle's voice on the single "You & Me," as the singer cuts through the steely whir of the production and allows her tone to properly convey the desperation of the lyrics.
12. January feat. Jamie Woon - Similarly to the way Hercules & Love Affair underlined Antony Hegarty's deep-throated emotion, Jamie Woon's melancholy is exploited on "January," a shimmering dance cut that isn't afraid to strike pensive poses. Fans of Woon's "Lady Luck" single should love this repeat performance.
13. Confess To Me feat. Jessie Ware - Months after gaining recognition for its remix of Jessie Ware's "Running," Disclosure recruits the U.K. songstress and traps her in a pummeling techno landscape. Unfortunately, the subtleties of Ware's mighty voice are largely lost in the clutter; "Confess To Me" sounds like a potentially fantastic live cut, but on "Settle," it never fully comes together.
14. Help Me Lose My Mind feat. London Grammar - Whereas Jessie Ware's contribution to "Settle" overstepped its boundaries, London Grammar's turn on "Help Me Lose My Mind" is ornately arranged and wholly gorgeous. Draw a line from "When a Fire Starts To Burn" to this track, and drink in the journey that Disclosure has taken its listeners on with their debut album.
