This album is ambiguous, to say the least. It resides in a subterranean aluminum garden, basking in the remnants of an extraterrestrial bronze age. It emits the feeling of exploring a vast and eerie space as a retro-futuristic marine biologist.

But still, that would be to underestimate the capacity of Carti as a composer. Carti transcended music to craft a masterpiece in sound and texture, conjuring the very best elements from industrial metal to create a classic.
