While there are a good number of EPs that do flow from one to another, either in style or concept, this isn't really what T2 is for, as such it's probably better to talk about individual parts rather than the sum.

Loading... does what it says, it acts as an intro piece, atmospheric and lush it is a wonderful mood-setter. The simple combination of synth pads moving back and forth while a main melody gets quieter and louder in a similar fashion is interesting and creates a gentle haze.

Throwaways, Pt. 2.

Something that every AOTY artist has in common (or at least every AOTY artist I've reviewed) is the upward trajectory in the quality of their work.

Damn I think this is better than Bipolar Haha. Man I can't wait till your next project!

I really do love the sound of that watery pad and the little melody that pops in too, but the clipping/distortion is super annoying. The drum pattern is cool also, the reversed hat was a super cool touch. When the other little noise embellishment pops in,the distortion from before started bothering me less, and as a whole, this does feel like a cool intro! It also feels like it could be a piece ... read more
