wow wtf i unironically adore this.
i absolutely love the way this album talks about mental health in an extremely personal and insightful way while still being incredibly funny. musically, this shit as catchy as hell and even beautiful at times. i haven’t even seen the special but these songs can easily stand on their own. please go check this out if you haven’t already
