I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this album after its announcement in fall 2020. I was not disappointed.
While many of the tracks are reminiscent of Unknown Room, in both composition and sound palette, that by no means is a weakness for the album. A beautiful selection of guest vocalists make the album make the album extremely engaging. I look forward to spinning the wax for the missus once it arrives.
My favorite track is an instrumental: Third Eye. It is utterly Braptastic. experimentalfan
