Plenty of the songs are great, but the albums gets dragged down by some of the more obnoxious ones. If it was just an EP of the good songs, I would love this

There are some awkward moments on here, it seems like Cedric has

kinda lost the ability to write lyrics as crazy as he wants and make

them work without sounding awkward or forced

Honestly that's how I've felt about every TMV album I've listened to Xing, but maybe I should put in more time

The other two are a considerable drop in quality but still worthy of 4's

"Weird song to release as the first single, but it works in the context of the album"



Cray cray. It was a spectacular single but doesn't flow with the rest of the album at all. I was

confused when the rest of the album was super electronic.

The song Goliath is the tastiest of jams but otherwise that record did nothing for me
And the Pink Floyd cover was an affront to everything I believe in

Don't hate on Octahedron. Since We've Been Wrong is a better song than any of you will ever come close to writing or composing.

went completely off my tits in the pub once when someone told me they were breaking up for that Bosnian Rainbows bullshit. Thank you Volta, for your quality grooves, thesaurus bashing vocals and epic guitar driven sound-scapes
