2 stars I'm gonna melt you guys....

this is the prime objective of Devin on this album, and he achieves it, however, its not a very plesant melting...

i found this album to be extremly dissapointing, i mean reeeeally dissapointing, im such a big fan of Devin. I thought this was going to be an atmosphric ambiance dream, full of lush keyboards and his signature sustained guitar effects

but no...sadly far from it

from what i can remember, this album contains pretty much no proper keyboards, mainly the occasional drone of various tones, pretty much no guitar, and i think there was 1 short time that dums were present, even tho' they sounded like kitchen pots and pans falling onto the ground repeadidly

i would recomend Devin fans to check this out, just so you can get it out of your system, and know that you've heard it, because otherwise you'll end up like me, collecting Devins entire catalog then eventualy working your way to this awful piece of music,

people who dont know devins music, DO NOT GO NEAR THIS ALBUM, for the love of god...dont

basicaly the whole album is made up of Sound bites recorded by Devin,

ill give it 2 stars, 1 star goes for the somewhat funny im gonna melt you thing, but this gets old, and another star just incase i re-visit this and dont find it AS bad as i thought.....however this is doubtfull

overall the album just made me keep asking myself.......why devin, why?

TR!P | 2/5 |
