Best thing About this Album: The artistic integrity and broad range of influence that has been compiled into one artistic whole.
One thing I wish was different: This album is not easily or instantly accessible. It’s not actively “catchy”. It exudes a more passive beauty. It requires some mental action of the listener to make a connection. The music provides a supportive energy, but an initial spark is required for ignition.
