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.
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
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
Very influential album. Pretty much where Vaporwave starts. The music also puts one in a hypnagogic state which is hard to explain.
Insanity turned into art, then back into insanity. The details and layers are too many to pick out, but the more you listen to it, the more its little intricacies worm their way back into your subconscious.
