When one thinks 'LoFi', one could mistakenly think 'aurally substandard'. That could not be further from the truth. This collection of diverse color and dreamy soundscapes is an amazingly articulate backdrop that is full, colorful, and appropriately minimal. While the music is minimal in nature, it is never stagnant or without vibrantly developing themes that glide in and out of focus, allowing the listener to be drawn deeply into the musical well that only The Monk by the Sea can create. 10/10.
