This is easily Washed Out's best full-length record. Mister Mellow eschews a lot of the problems albums like Within & Without had by being a very concise as well as memorable listen. No idea presented on this record overstays it's welcome for even a second, and the touches of dream pop, neo-psychedelia, and even balearic beat give the tested chillwave formula some nice flavor. The album flows near perfectly, with each song leading into the next and the interludes serving the great purpose of telling a story fitting the music. Though it is quite short for a style like this, as if it's one piece of toast short of the fabled "complete breakfast" cereal commercials always go on about, it's still a fulfilling listen that is very easy to replay and even easier to digest. Had he added one or two more three-to-four minute tracks and perhaps another interlude, this thing could've been a contender for electronic album of the year, but as it is it's a great listen. Nice to see him getting better as the years go on.
