THAT LAST TRACK THOOOOOO HOLY FUCKING SHIT

We stan feeling suicidal and dead on the inside

I really really hope I enjoy it more the next time I listen to it because the flashes of greatness that I heard were absolutely amazing!!

Favorite Tracks: Earthmover and Hunter

This album is a masterpiece. It's been on repeat for the last week or so. Such a beautiful listen, it takes you on a journey. One of the best albums I've heard. Haunting, dreary, dreamy, but beautiful as well.

Edit: (decided to give this album a review)
