This album has a precious quality to it. It sounds like a desperate attempt to retain the purity of something that is clearly disassembling and corrupting. The emotions throughout this record demonstrate what beauty and grace as well as sorrow there is to be found in such instances and culminates in the fracturing of all of those pieces of emotion.
