Read some recent interviews with Consequence of SoundDummy Mag, PitchforkSpinStereogum, THUMPThe Verge, and here's what a few folks have been saying about the album as well. Have your own question for James? He'll be doing an AMA with the fine folks at Vinyl Me, Please next Tuesday at 2pm EST.

“Potential recalls the optimistic rave moment when the right combination of people and the right DJ could make you feel like you were part of something that mattered” Pitchfork

"Truly transformative dance pop” MOJO

"the most human electronic record released for ages” Loud & Quiet 

"That sense of newfound freedom and exaltation surges through Potential, a rich matrix of the Range’s knack for digging up strangers’ stories and assimilating breakbeat, grime, U.K. garage, and late ’90s R&B" SPIN Essential Album  

“Hinton's meaningful methodology recalls what Burial did on Untrue or what Luomo did on Vocality.“ THUMP
