Album Review
Shay Z
Reviewed 2016-02-11 
Journey into the ethereal, underwater world of Alec Koone’s mind on Child Death. Under the stage name Balam Acab, Koone crafts ghostly hip-hop beats with glimmering strings and shining vocals. Slow-paced and epic, the album features many songs that grow into gorgeous, intricate collages with many sections, movements, and climaxes. Shoegazey synths wash over intriguing vocal sampling and quirky instrumental beats.

Favorite Tracks: 2, 4

1. (5:08) Glory Sickness - Ghostly vocals, sparkling sugary synths, dreamy xylophone, nice pace change at 2:45
2. (6:51) Spent Lives* - Spacey intro, downtempo hip hop, interplay of male and female vocals
3. (8:45) Andiwilltellu - Water hypnotic effects, interesting pace change at 5:00
4. (3:52) Do Death* - Swelling, melancholic vocals, atmospheric, enveloping sound
5. (7:39) Underwater Forever - Watery intro, blissful strings, tinkling xylophone, teasing gaps in sound, builds to a cacophonous close
