Album Review
Reviewed 2024-01-24
Bold, fun, colorful electronic music (although some tracks are a little boring)
RIYL: Laurence Guy, Bicep, Elkka, TSHA, Fred again.., Jayda G, Jungle
!!!FCC VIOLATION in Track 2!!!

1(3:33)- held harmonies with a repeating piano motif. Has orchestral energy but is a little bland. Feels like dumb optimism
2(4:14)- HUGE Fred again esque energy with different voice cut overlayed and moves into a super dancey energy. FCC violation 2:10-2:13 (fbomb)
3(3:01)- cautiously upbeat energy, has some beautiful swaths of sound
4(2:18)- piano over a dancy beat and poppy vocals
5(3:42)- solid disco energy, makes me want to get up and dance with a solid side step side step move
6(3:52)- kind of cheesy with repeating 'when the people got the power' loop and slow rise to a light beat what is the point and the naming of the track feels lazy...I also tuned out 1/3 of the way in because there's no development of the track and it's like drinking distilled water (i.e bland)
7(4:17)- same as previous track..nothing too interesting going on with not much musical development in the track. It feels like good hold music at a conference when they're changing between speakers
8(4:06)- groovy, dancey beats over singing vocals. Definite day party 20% through the playlist energy. Ends with spaceship comms recording over light piano.
9(3:29)- bouncey soft synthey track with energy like the first sun rays after a long downpour
10(3:29)- Portuguese sample that's repeated in the track. Super dancey, Brazilian energy and beats
11(5:26)- low tempo, arpeggiated harmonies, has a nora en pure energy
