What stops it from being a turgid and dull affair are the songs themselves, which are dark throughout yet almost always enthralling.

Passage simply pulls several familiar objects into one detailed picture, a predictably good look from a pair whose script seems every bit as written as much as lived.

Passage is endearing, with unforgettable peaks; it looks beautiful at first glance, and has no shortage of beautiful moments, but don’t delve too deeply lest the mirage of a grandiose masterpiece dissolve.

Too much of Passage opens up doors—big, gaping ones—that don’t ever lead anywhere.
