Looking at the cover of this project, you don't expect much in the way of complexity. Even after listening to the first few minutes, density isn't what comes to mind. I find that to be a good metaphor for the album. What this is is musical honesty from Car Seat Headrest. Will Toledo has a thorough understanding of him (and his band's) strengths and weaknesses. There isn't any coverup or any filler, it's all them. They don't try anything crazy experimental they just play and sing what they know. Great guitars and synths, fantastic writing and passionate vocals.

Better than Teens of Style. Fantastic lyrics, extremely impressive instrumentals, and hard hitting and emotional vocals. I think the song structures on here are far more interesting than ToS as well.

This album is too good to be true, I didn't expect this at all. Better than Twin Fantasy (in my humble opinion). 8.8/10.
