Long Season lived up to the hype. That shit is a god damn once in a lifetime performance. The rest of this album is incredible, and it also lives up to the hype. One of the most magically music listens I have had in a minute. Almost as good as joji

THE LAST 4 MINUTES ARE ONE OF THE BEST THINGS EVER PLAYED IN HISTORY!!!!!

Reggae, Rock, Dream Pop, Psychedelia, Contemplation, sound explosions, textures and much more. All these elements contribute to deliver a show at the minimum FENOMENAL.
It is two hours from a concert that I will take you on an unbelievable journey through the created melodies and that will deliver a conclusion that is hardly described in words.

We finally did it... we found a perfect score in the Genre Quest!

“Sank you, Sank you, for mah laaaiiife!”
Literal perfection. This live version of “Long Season” sounds much better than the original studio version. That song has to be the best album closer of all time, across its whopping 40 minutes, it manages to not bore for a single second. Very easy greatest song of all time choice, too. Good luck finding any song that comes close to this amazing beast.

Life changing live performance/album.

I listened to this album a week ago, and it didn't disappoint, my only criticism is that it dragged for a bit, but that doesn't discredit the record for how good it is, the highlight of this is obviously Long Season.
