Ages worse than yogurt.
Decided to listen to this after I listened to Ugly Is Beautiful which I enjoyed quite much.

Favorite Tracks: People, Warrior, This is Separation, Universal, Sacred Elements, Stuck Down The Wrong Rabbit Hole.

Overall, I enjoyed every song on this album and loved the aesthetic to it. Tbh I prefer his singing in this album as opposed to his rapping. This shit is fucking beautiful

Dude im blown away. This is incredible and really shows how fucked the industry is. His label made him lose the spark that he once had and would rather him be a character than an artist. Music shouldn't be treated like a show it should be treated as sounds and music. Fuck the industry

fav track: Revival, From Reds To Blues, Warrior, This Is Separation, Sacred Elements

least fav track: Universal
I discovered this album when I was on a road trip with my family and I was listening to music on my soundcloud. I slept and when I woke up I heard Oliver's voice but this wasn't the same Oliver we knew today. This Oliver wasn't Oliver Tree but simply, Tree. The songs are good and chill to listen to and is surprisingly very different then the Oliver we know today.
