This album is exactly what I could hope for from a current day Lauren Bousfield release.
It's a glitchy, dark, breakcore + pop influenced mess that I thoroughly enjoy and in this regard the album is phenomenal the sound design is dense and orchestral full of icey violin stabs. synth pads and ambient textures scattered across the backdrop. This is obviously countered with Laurens signature glitchy and sliced up breakbeats and distorted beep-boops. And well yeah what more do you want me to say ... read more

real horseshoe theory of an album - clean glossy pop-adjacent package with so much to dissect as layers just keep unfolding onto themselves, but the heart and light in the middle of it all manage to shine thru and aren't drowned out amidst the clatter [and holy shit is there a LOT of clatter]
