I have gone full circle with this. really liking on the first listen then it getting a bit bland and flat with tired sounds and progressions but then the tunes started to sing and come alive. I love it all but the first half is astounding.
I feel that releasing tracks and teasers here and there ruin an album for me though. Hawkmoth was so out of place because I was much more familiar with it than the others. This broke up the album and I started to listen to individual track and skipping over others. Not how an album should be listened to in my opinion. I had to force myself to sit through the lot without skipping so I could take in every track equally.
I hated Tether at first as the sounds were too familiar, seemed rushed. left over sounds from scintilli put me off thinking this album as a new entity. And sounds reminiscent of early 90's dance etc too, which quickly grew on me and I love their inclusion.
Nafovanny is a really strong sound and Wallet really came into it's own after repeated listens on headphones. Liverpool street, is not weak either, it's just not as obvious as the others. The only one that I would say is the weakest would be Matin luniere. It's good, obviously but, it does not have the depth that the others have.
