yeah Aes was said on an Instagram Q&A before the release that he didn't intend for it to be a "full album" experience. He basically said to pick your favorite tracks and curate the album to fit your tastes. Lucky for me I dig every single song here

I mean I listen to post-metal so that's not the issue. It's just that I was not in the right headspace for it when I made my first attempt.

It's a build ur own album experience except I'm too pretentious to not make it simeutaneously a concept album which is ruined when you build it yourself

Considering there's no cohesion between tracks, I wouldn't say it's ruined if you were to build your own version. Reminds me of the bootlegs of Smile and how it was considered an "interactive" album that people would piece together and sequence in their own way.

The idea of a choose-your-own-adventure concept album actually sounds kinda dope



But yeah the "curate the track list yourself" shit is a total cop-out, like jfc have some faith in your own material why don't you

Digging: Steve Reich - Music for 18 Musicians

He's basically just telling people that he's cool with people listening to the album the way 99% of people listen to albums anyway

@Pots I'm curious as to why you gave this a 1. I can see it being low if the track list is too long or if you just don't like his style, but I usually only reserve a score that low for something that is almost impossible to listen to or something that I find no redeeming quality to.
