Soft Universe is the fourth studio album by Australian electronic act Pnau. The album was released in July 2011 by Etcetc and peaked at number 13 on the ARIA Charts; becoming the act's highest charting album to date. The album 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 Empire of the Sun's Walking on a Dream and Groove Armada's Black Light, both of which featured heavy involvement from Littlemore. 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.
