Amazingly, No Fantasy Required is Tiga's first album for seven years, and sees him switch from long-time home Different to Ninja Tune offshoot Counter Records. Those who've followed his career to date will immediately feel at home, as he delivers a set of stylish, attractive songs that variously tip a wink to Gary Numan, Kraftwerk, Junior Boys, Chicago acid, Visionquest, Visage and, of course, his electroclash past.
On No Fantasy Required, he never seems more present than on the Dear co-production "3 Rules," where his love of bass thump and sly sense of humor shine most brightly, particularly during the track’s witty coda. It’s on the back half that Tiga seems to withdraw from his own album, his sense of humor curdling. Three singles in a row, two of them previously released, weigh down the album, starting with the "Planet E" a much-anticipated collaboration with fellow club bombardier Hudson Mohawke that feels inexplicably tame
Released while the artist was declaring that when it comes to albums, "they don't even matter to me anymore," Tiga's No Fantasy Required is a jumbled mix, featuring some previous singles like 2011's "Plush" and his 2014 collaboration with Pusha T, "Bugatti," although the GOOD Music MC's name has fallen off the track list.
