An album that accomplishes everything it sets out to, this is Yves Tumor's most accomplished release. Raw noise, punk, and pop; nothing about this record feels unsure. This album will live forever; it's a perfect testament to Post-Trump mania and confusion.

As the singles came out I was growing weary of this record, I couldn't quite contextualize them and they didn't seem to have their own identity, other than 'borderline.'

Recommend this record for anyone looking for something soothing and emotional.
