So many precious moments through the album. Very calming and thrilling in "Running", vibrating and joyful in "2nd Guess". It's a very soulful work. Lifting up the mood in general, Emily creates a beautiful mix of emotions here. It would be unnecessary go into more details, so just enjoy it.

And that’s what this album evokes.

I've fell in love with this with no much effort. From the deep Jupiter 4 to the heartbreaking Seventeen and going through Hands, Stay and Malibu, all the tracks make a beautiful composition.
