I'm going to sorely miss Caleb's voice, but Gloom's first album with Stephen Brodsky might be the one of the easiest entry points into the band's catalog thus far. Still sludgy and abstract as ever, but not without its own unique flavor.


OMG never disappoints.
This album took me a while to win me over.
This listen is a bit of a journey the way the album is structured.
Positives- each song is unique and different not what I was expecting.
