This kind of drowned out hypnotic dream pop straddles the fine line between comforting and depressing. I feel content and warm listening to this, but at the same time, there's this subtle gloomy feeling pulling me down.
The story behind this album doesn't change the music. It doesn't save it from being a dreary collection of boring demos. Not to mention the parts where it sounds like Jai's acting like a 6-year-old, turning the volume dial up and down. I feel a headache coming on from all these dated sound effects.
