Vaporwave starts and ends here. The album is too long for its own good, but the slowed down and pitch shifted vocals on most tracks make up the unique sound that Lopatin created, and has been such an influential part of diy music in this decade. Lopatin has surpassed himself multiple times since Eccojams, but nothing else has been as influential and important.
Lopatin limits himself down to only making basic edits to sampled songs. Vocal snippets are chopped, streched and warped to give each voice a haunting, lonely and hopeless edge. The result is arguably the most innfluential album of the decade, the mother of vaporwave.
Surprisingly the simple edits made to the samples make the album so unique in its mood.
The album is all alone, as the reverb and echo of each of the sample loops seem to go on forever, only drowned out by the next loop coming. ... read more
This is basically THE vaporwave album. Now while this album is known for being a huge inspiration for vaporwave, which it is, this record is highly uninspired. Every track just takes a sample or two, and either a) pitches the vocals higher or lower constantly b) loops a vocal clip repeatedly or c) uses a stutter loop on a vocal bit. And Jesus the stutter loops on this are just awful, and they happen so often. Obviously, this isn't bad per say, just very uncreative vibe and production. At least ... read more
An important piece of Vaporwave history, however, the very simple loops here haven't aged all that well. It goes on a bit too long and is a bit dull of a listen.

Best Track: Lightning Strikes
Worst Track: Let Her Go
This album makes me feel stressed in all the right ways. Daniel Lopatin is a fucking genius !!!!!!!!!!!
