Amazingly good. I need to spend a lot of time with it though. Lots to chew on in this one. In general, I'm extremely in favor of the general shift away from irony and towards emotional honesty in a lot of music these days.
It's so lyrically dense! As if the compositions weren't brilliant enough.

I thought Reddit was the cool people and we were the judgemental dicks. I don't even understand the internet any more.
Reddit is reliant on a hivemind mentality that smothers opinions that aren't the current trend but sways back and forth from week to week. We have strong opinions and butt heads, but generally nobody's getting barraged with downvotes and having their replies literally hidden from other users.

But sidenote I've been open for a long time about how I can't stand certain atmospheres are music festivals and the creeping ever growing broization and destruction of the music aspect of music festivals is seriously dampening my buzz about them.
Seriously, festival culture has changed a LOT in the past 8-10 years, and not for the better.
