: bleakly euphoric music by Jon Hopkins
; harrowing video - perfectly married to the music - by director Tom Haines. Hopkins says 'Collider' is the best track he's ever written
. It's the centrepiece of his critically acclaimed
2013 album Immunity
In addition to 'Collider', two other singles were released from the album, each with its own compelling visual accompaniment:
- AllMusic: "almost imperceptibly shifting beats"
- Pitchfork: "The aggressive dance tracks darkly obliterate everything else, while the wet and sunny piano-ambient ones wash out into the sounds of wind, waves, and gulls."
- The Guardian: "captures the feel of an epic night out"; "Hopkins's beats shuffle and trip but there is a great clarity of focus throughout, and a delicate beauty"
