slowly and gregariously, this album is a deep dive into what loneliness is. the heavy instrumentation evokes a sense of doom, as the surreal atmospherics complete the picturesque music.
this album completely accomplished what it set out to do: to create stunning, dark music that feels on a grander scale.
beginning with two sampled minutes of iggy pop’s genius, rambling on about punk rock, ‘come on die young’ is a showcase of heartache instrumentals.
the second track, “cody”, is the only song on the album with lyrics. additionally, it is an acronym of the album’s title ‘Come On Die Young’.
