this is absolutely gorgeous, yet I can't help but feel resoundingly empty listening to this.
strange that I find that the songs are too short because usually I'm so quick to complain
that a song drags on for too long. most of the songs are a between a minute and 2 minutes
long and are comprised of simple repeating (and marvelous) melodies, the result feels like a
series of very shallow easy listening background/elevator music...and yet, this is, so far,
my 2013 album of the year...
