1. (3:52) *** Synths like gurgling water then jazzy drum solo. Wordless choral voices float above a layered handclap beat. Ends with a thumping kind of hidden track that transitions to song 2
2. (2:47) * Beat driven piece interlaced with deep unintelligible but beautiful vocal samples. Magic.
3. (2:44) *** Smooth, transportive music. Really clever and addictive vocal samples cloaked in chimes with some perfectly suited drums to hold it all together
4. (1:43) Cinematic beatless interlude
5. (3:39) ** Mid-tempo. Jazzy drums. Soulful female vocals repeating the line "simple creatures". I don't know where he comes up with this stuff but I'm all over it
6. (4:17) *** Starts slow and cinematic then a beautifully wild beat comes in. Ambient middle and then a new beat for the back half. Whatever cult this guy is part of I'm joining.
7. (4:26) ** Slight transition from out of track 6. Loping beat with some nice synth melodies. Eventually layered with almost operatic vocals
8. (2:45) ** Jangling percussion, wordless female vocals, cool bass sounds, nice ascending melody
9. (1:10) Choral mood piece. Sounds like lava. Cool
10. (5:13) ** Jazzy guitar and drum lead up that fuses with some beautiful strings. Great percussion. Dark conclusion.
11. (3:27) *** Awesome awesome awesome drums on this. I can't get enough. Transitions into ambience for the last third of the song
12. (8:05) ** Ooooh here it is. Absolutely captivating vocal samples with a pounding beat. Strings and synth textures slowly overtake the vocals and drums for a smooth finish. I can't wait to take the journey again.
