Although some of that magic still pokes its head through here and there, it’s largely obscured by Vertigo's overarching lethargy.

Filled with incredible production and excellent alt-pop songwriting, "vertigo" is a fantastically-crafted, frequently beautiful and severely underrated record. It's surprisingly experimental compared to EDEN's previous works, and the vocal performances are even stronger here. Certainly not for everyone, but I will defend this album with my life. Absolutely love it. Plus it manages to somehow be even better live.

The more I keep listening to this album, the more I love it. I can understand why people don't like this, but I enjoy the aesthetic behind this and EDEN's style. This tells a story about a breakup, to moving on, to getting back into love, to finishing with "You're not alone, you can do this". I highly recommend listening to this from the beginning to the end.

The message left on the unused side of the vinyl copy:

"I don't know what you're going through right now, I can't say I understand because I don't and I will never. if it's amazing I hope you remember to ground yourself. if you're caught up I hope you remember to let go. if it's overwhelming I hope you remember that you're human and that's beautiful. If it's heartbreak I hope you remember you are never alone, if its nothing I hope you're brave enough to see past it and strong enough to ... read more
