The distant foginess of nostalgia creeps in the background but doesn't overwhelm the record. A hopeful undertone allows that era to be reflected upon with acceptance and the old feelings to shine as clearly as they can through the mist of memory.

The intention was very good, but it's hard to listen to this album as if it is muddy and the vocal that does not break above the music layer at all.
It's a nice listening experience when songs like "Broad River" and "I Remember It Well" roll in, but the rest of the songs are weaker.

The magic of this one is on repetition. Would love to listen to it in a very long walk or while studying. P.S: great album cover.

saint etienne's latest album holds some of the lushest instrumentals and soundscapes i've heard this year.

Saint Etienne as usually got my heart at the production and delicate electronic vibes combined with instrumentals that create unique combinations. However the album is quite monotonous, the songs are very similar to each other. I feel like there’s no statement on this album which makes it very easy to forget. Good for chill background music though
