ValisThe Demolished Man
Taking the listener on a dark, vivid, and intense trip through the various stages of grieving that follows the collapse of a long romantic relationship, it is very clear that this record is not just a collection of songs thrown together for an LP release. This is a record that was made and conceived as an album and to listen through it start to finish is to experience an incredible arc of emotions and ideas. The album's extremely lush and detailed production serves as a perfect counterpart to its rich conceptual execution and makes repeat listens extremely rewarding, but it is perhaps the impeccable songwriting that really ties it all together. The band claim to have scrapped two LPs worth of material in the 3 years that the world has been waiting for this record, and we can assure you that the resulting LP has made every second of the wait worth it.
