The Swedish EDM superstar’s posthumous final album purports to reveal Tim Bergling as he’s never been seen, but the scrum of co-writers and guest singers leaves more questions than answers.
Superstar DJ’s posthumous LP suggests an artist’s struggle in both heart and art.
This posthumous release knowingly preaches to the converted, but it ultimately honours his family's wish to keep the late DJ's EDM legacy alive.
The beautiful end result is quite possibly the eeriest posthumous album of all time.
The album is extremely vulnerable and doesn’t sugarcoat any of the dark and morose emotions Avicii was feeling during the majority of his mainstream career.
Avicii’s ‘TIM’ is an anthemic journey out of EDM that demonstrates his artistic legacy.
The Young Folks
Tim is the final work by Avicii, a genre-redefining artist never satisfied with playing more of the same material that got him recognized. To the very end, Tim Bergling continued to elevate the genre of electronic music.
TIM evokes the the past artist’s verity in melody, style, and genre, containing carefully selected, unfinished harmonies from collaborators who where close with him.
Tim is a statement from the man himself expressing his love and appreciation for not just his craft, but for the love and devotion for his fans who cared deeply for him.
With posthumous album release, Avicii goes out on top. There is the power of love all over TIM.
The DJ-turned-pop star was responsible for creating some of the most popular electronic-infused hits of this decade.
A project of love that allows those closest to him to extend his legacy, while giving fans a way to mourn him in a manner he might have preferred: dancing with open arms toward a more hopeful tomorrow.
“TIM” is the culmination of Avicii’s song-based flair that incorporates elements outside EDM. Unlike other DJs, his songs aren’t rushed. He lets them breathe. The predictable tricks his rivals use are absent here. The songs feel organic, not processed.
We Rave You
The eclectic collection of the late Swede’s creations is a bittersweet listen for fans across the world.
The Arts Desk
It's both eerie and heartbreaking to an extraordinary degree.
An album of “nearly finished songs”.
The music is mostly mid-paced in the tropical house style, bland at times, built for nodding your head to at home rather than losing self-control at a festival. It’s a sad final bow from a man whose career generated a lot of happiness.
This album is surprisingly satisfying.
A good record has a blend of highs and lows, and Avicii stays with tradition. “TIM” is haunting, masterfully assembled and completely Tim.
There are no words to describe the beauty of ‘TIM’.
The Courier Online
The process has been continued by his collaborators in an attempt to match his vision as closely as possible.
