Soft Universe is the fourth LP release of electronic act Pnau. It is their highest charting release to date and featured a new "rock-anthem" sound unlike the duo's straightforward electronic dance sound for which they were previously known. The album received generally positive reviews, with some claiming the release to be a solid follow-up to not only Pnau, but also to Walking on a Dream and Groove Armada's Black Light, both of which featured heavy involvement from Littlemore and were released after Pnau's previous LP. Many critics, however, expressed mixed feelings concerning the new sound and direction, mostly in comparison to the duo's "quirky" sound and themes of their 2007 release. The album peaked at No. 13 on the Australian albums chart.
