ctrlzofia this album is marvelous! i first listened to it about a month ago and it’s already one of my favorites ever. not only did the artwork really caught my attention but the intro track is so beautiful and haunting…. just as the rest of record feels like a really long daydream, it’s surreal and ethereal … i love it
