I don’t know if it’s the cover, or the fact that parts of it reminds me of 2814’s Birth of a New Day, but this album inherently makes me think of an urban scenario while listening – riding a train at night out of the city, riding a bike down a sun-lit avenue, or just shimmying through a cluster of people on a crowded sidewalk. The music is incredibly cinematic like that. The synths are refreshing, the melodies are buoyant, uplifting and gently propulsive. Washes of synthetic harmony ebb and flow through the steady beat while calculated melodies tell the story. It’s music like this that makes me want to hop back on the subway and drift away into my imagination. Until then, I’m gonna keep it locked and loaded on a playlist for that moment.
