Review by Kempokid
3 stars The electronic era continues with yet another vibey mood piece that puts more significance on the textures and vague bits of imagery mixed throughout rather than a more tangible sense of individual songwriting, this time feeling like a bit of a middle ground between the strange, but bright pop melodies of Octopus Kool Aid and the endlessly dark, murky atmosphere of Un corazón de nadie. The main point of interest here is the way the electronic instrumentation ends up feeling like a bit more of a backdrop to the other elements at play here rather than dominating the compositions in the past, with a far stronger emphasis on the interplay between the fuzzy vocal melodies and drum beats being notable. It's all pretty well played and leads to crafting a pretty mysterious vibe that's worth listening to if you really like that stuff, but I also found that with the exception of the very emotionally charged final track Angel Hair, nothing else here was really something that outright moved me in a way beyond simply finding it pretty cool. This is definitely the sort of album more for the fans than one that I'd ever really consider as a good point to start listening to Omar Rodriguez Lopez.
