Rostam - Changephobia
Jun 6, 2021
75
Much like “Half-Light”, “Changephobia” is a largely enjoyable album weighed down by moments of trite singing and song writing. Rostam is an undeniable talent, especially as a producer, and this album is a nice document of said talent. No song here is bad, though a few (“Changephobia”, “To Communicate”, “Bio18”) feel more childish than they do inspiring. Electronic flourishes set the album apart from other guitar-centered projects, giving the album a greater sense of depth. The saxophone across the album is its pulse, keeping it bouncy and warm. Ultimately, the album is pleasant enough and full of a handful of truly great songs (“Unfold You”, “From the Back of a Cab”, “4Runner”, “Kinney”, “Starlight”), yet it is too restrained to make Rostam the break out solo star he seems to be working towards becoming.
