I’ve been an EitS fan since buying the Friday Night Lights soundtrack the day after I saw the movie. This is their first album in five years, not including a few movie soundtracks. I was cautious that it would be too much of a departure from their previous stylings after hearing the early release of Disintegration Anxiety. Even on the first listen, it hooked me and it hooked me good. More ambient than their previous work, but still a lot of hopeful melodies working up and down and carrying each song along.
