This will be a growing album.

The feel of this is very much like a book, should be sat down and listened to properly. There is a strong vibe of Madvillainy which is obvious due to the love to Doom from Earl.
The sound has grown over each of his albums and that is exactly how music should be and what critics strive for, even if it's not what fans always want.

But the sound is consistent from start to finish which is not easy when producing. Another point, produced a lot by Earl himself, ... read more

Strong instrumentals throughout, a solid narrative although would have suggested his own responses to the narrator.

Best Track - Disaster
Worst Track - Voices

A more accessible album of late but still the originality is fading into the general pop culture and they are losing sense of their brilliance.

Beautiful sound all the way through this album, it keeps a vibe which is the sign of a well thought out and orchestrated album. Production is crisp and warm, perfect length.
