It's strange what happens when we force ourselves to work. We imagine that time equals quality, but that's only true to an extent. Compare this album to 2 years of failure. It is as good, perhaps better. Perhaps worse. A little less polished, a little less depth, but the emotion, the clarity, the beats give this album the feel of an improvisational set, performed live with the artists full skills on display. This album is a reminder that we should challenge ourselves more often.
