This is the kind of album you can listen to over and over again without ever getting tired of the music. It's incredibly soothing and emotional; you feel as though the music is connecting to your very soul... It transcends music. I love how smooth the transitions are, and how the pieces connect to each other while also standing strong independently. I know I'll be enjoying this album for a long time. It was very difficult to pick a favorite track because they're all so good!
The lively instrumentation, while still making the listener anticipate more... that's what keeps me thirsting for this album. I've enjoyed it while at work, working out, and when just watching nature. It speaks to the depths of my soul.
The colors of AbRab truly shine out and come to life! The sound of the count throughout pieces felt like something nostalgic, yet I know it's something I haven't heard before... and it kept me intrigued. Getting to experience their new sounds and explore them, as they've cleverly and melodically crafted them, made this album feel like such a fun adventure. It was so hard to decide a "favorite" again... The talents of these two are incredible as ever.
I'm a bit over two years late with this, but it just goes to show - this album is still great and showcases beautiful skill and artistic expertise in electronic music. Seattle gives rich warmth and depth to electronic sounds, to the point where it's decadent upon the ears. The diverse energies of each piece keep the album exciting, and the sweet, mellow end with Telescopes really ties in all of the feelings. This is on par with Postal Service and Owl City, yet remains unique in identity.
There's so much heart and soul in all of these tracks. Figments of memory and feeling woven into each, enabling the listener to relate while discovering something in his or herself. Loving the directions he follows in his music; it's fresh and the world needs more stuff like this.
