Like with the previous Kiss Kiss releases, I never want The Dismal; The Beautiful to end. I'm quite content with
hitting repeat, and continue to discover new parts that went over my head with the previous listen. This album
feels like stripped down Kiss Kiss, with the heart and soul still there. The record begins with sort of a
Radiohead feel and finishes off reminding me how much I love Pink Floyd's earlier material. Halfway through, I
can't stop crying to "The Worst." The album title is perfect. The Dismal; The Beautiful is awe-inspiring, witty,
trippy, delightfully wacky, intelligent, unique, musically ept... The Dismal; The Beautiful is Josh Benash.
