This has to be one of the most depressing albums of 2020 if I had to be honest, I've never heard Matt Elliott music before, so I was quite surprised when I heard his voice for the first time, it's just so booming and stern, yet sombre and mellow too. Plus, the instrumentation on this one is very beautiful, his guitar work is just so well-crafted, and these songs are either sound dark & eerie or Light & calm. Not to mention how incredibly depressing this lyrics are, I mean just look at the lyrics at Aboulia:
"Tired of living
Tired of trying
Tired of fighting
Of shouting and crying
I envy the dying"
I hope Matt Elliott is doing okay, cause wow, these lyrics can be a real gut-puncher at times.
Sure, it's doesn't have the most expansive of sounds, still check it out, but warning though, this can be a tough one to listen to depending on who you are
