In addition to being criminally underrated, Lions Write History is one of the most molecular records I own. Featuring soundscapes and tonality that convey the very colors seen by a realist in our world, the record sleeve is reminiscent of paintings like Rain, Steam and Speed by Joseph Mallord William Turner. Significantly, both the album and this painting possess an acute sense of humanity, but are also borne on an ethereal quality which is introduced alike with the steam engine appearing out of the heavy, earthy mist (bringing a sense of novelty into the 20th century amidst a world of skepticism and reluctance for change). Being neither pretentious nor conspicuously plain, the record molds sweeping adagios alongside very angular rhythm sections and bass-driven melodies. The best part about the record by far is the collaboration that grace the tracks, wrought alike with an overwhelming sense of pensiveness that goes into the both the pre-production and the mastering of the album. These are, to cut a long story short, perfect on the record, being apparent but not enough to ruin the subtle progression of the songs.
