1. (7:28) * Pulsing guitar feedback with some distant drums that turn into a more prominent beat. Druggy. Takes almost 4:00 for a real riff and vocals to come in but well worth the wait. Mid-tempo grand-scale opener
2. (4:03) *** Classic, bluesy guitar accented by reverb-laden vocals. Turns more jammy and psychedelic midway through.
3. (3:37) * Mid. Begins with heavy, plodding, drums. A lot more spacious like the first track.
4. (4:23) Starts right off the bat with a killer riff that recurs throughout the track. Last minute plays around with some heavily treated guitar
5. (4:03) * Anxious guitars before turning into a more jazzy groove. Super space/stoner rock vibe with lyrics about the passage of time.
6. (6:21) ** Opens with ambient, pulsating textures before some colossal drums come in with a noisy riff. Cool transition to a, dare I say, pretty guitar melody before returning to the epic distortion. Great ethereal background vocals. Panoramic before fading out into ambience for the last ~30 seconds
7. (4:36) * Stark bass guitar and reverby vocals. Slow, and then unexpectedly fast and energetic. Alternates between these two moods. Ends fairly abruptly.
8. (5:30) *** Great great drum beat beneath some beautifully haunting guitars. Gets noisy and unhinged. Ebbs into silence. Awesome closer.
