This is downtempo without being boring, themed without being repetitive. It's sultry, imaginative, and hypnotic. Carefully placed vocals on some of the songs are just right to complement the piece as a whole. I hate fancy words like transcendent, but that's what this is. You could listen to this at a party, at a restaurant, at the beach, in the car, to go to sleep, to wake up for the day. It's rare that I'll give a whole album two listens in a row, but this one is exceptional. This one will be a 5 star fave for me in the not-too-distant future. WOW.
