It’s easy to love this album; it checks every box. The vibe is chill, the mix is pro, it’s full of feels, and easy on the ears. The willfully cynical theme is successfully conveyed in the broodiness of the music, but is also offset by the shimmering beauty of it all. It is obvious to any ear that a great deal of care went into every detail of this album, to make it as much like itself as possible, without allowing technique to infringe on immersion. Here is music that you can escape with as effectively as one might with a movie, where the image is hi-def, but also filtered through the haze of nostalgia as effectively as the passage of time itself. Take the time to enjoy this entire album, and you won’t be disappointed.
