It was a hella long time ago that I actually listened to downy, so I was kiiiinda knowing what to expect but still kinda not sure, lol. This turned out a bit more experimental and "out-there" as I was anticipating, not that it's a bad thing.

 

I haven't had a listening experience like this for a while now, where I start the album and not rly feeling it, but gradually song by song it actually became better and better, peaking around tracks 6-7 (then the rest are a mixed bag). It was interesting. I like the trippy atmosphere and noisiness, but two things I have issues with:

1. WTF is that short synth interlude and why put it there? lol

2. In some of the tracks the way the drums are mixed/presented make it a bit difficult to enjoy the music (too loud and mechanical maybe?).

 

Other than these observations, I dig pretty much everything. Tracks 5, 6, 7, 10, 11 are the ones that got me hooked, especially 6-7 and 11.

 

For me it's an "almost 4-starer" but not quite, so  :3.5:

These guys so far have yet to disappoint in my opinion. I love how they manage to have such a unique sound and yet have every single album feel like a sort of logical progression from the last. At the same time, if you're not already on board with their overall sound I think this one ain't gonna be changing your mind as it still definitely undeniably sounds like downy in every respect.

 

I have to side w/ @Jigsaw9 regarding the song progression thing though, I think the first few tracks are the weakest ones (especially that interlude), but everything after track 3 ranges from ''good'' to ''AWWW YEAH'' for me. ''stand alone'' is absolutely one of the standout tracks for me, parts of it really bring that particular old-school brand of 90s post-hardcore/noise rock to mind which I absolutely love.

Yeah, that one really surprised me. I was not expecting that type of rawer sound, but it was a great way to end the album!

The only other thing I have to add is that even now, after having listened to downy for years, I'm still never 100% sure whether I'm always entirely on board with the vocals or not lol
