Rare, Forever sees Vynehall for the first time investigating who he is as a person and artist in the very moment, rather than looking to the past to discover what and who has shaped him. The result then contains multiple sides to him, but variety in his art is something Vynehall is used to - he described his 2018 Resident Advisor Podcast as taking the dancefloor “left and right, up and down." On Rare, Forever, he’s taking a victory lap. The album is a beautiful marriage of everything he's done so far while remaining genuinely progressive; the end result sounding like Nothing Is Still but with the narrative toned down, and the dancefloor dialled up.

Rare, Forever will feel familiar for fans of Vynehall’s DJ-Kicks mix or his eclectic excursions on NTS while simultaneously sounding unlike anything he’s ever done before. As much as there are dancefloor memories and moments, it’s not strictly a dance record — instead, Rare, Forever is the clearest representation of the broad spectrum of music he’s made to date.
