The following are my thoughts on a few of the songs included in the album:
Oh Yujan: An excellent song to start the album. Even though there are a lot of different layers, there is something beautifully simple about it, and I couldn’t help tapping my toes!
Lust Is A Double-Edged Sword: This is the first song on the album that has a more psychedelic sound. The combination of tremolo in one guitar overlaid with another using a whammy bar paints almost a cowboy duel sort of scene in the introduction. The rest of the song is punctuated with a string section and fantastic percussion that booms throughout.
Soundtrack Of Our Lives: This was one of my favourite tracks! It shows off serac’s vocal range and the subtle accompaniment is a great support to the beautiful and sensitive tone that can be heard from serac and his backing vocals.
The Moon And The Star: This was my other favourite song, and once again it added another entirely different sound to this eclectic album. This waltz told a charming story and did so through a duet with complimentary harmonies.
Lost: This song was a lot heavier, with distortion in the guitars, and closer harmonies. It is at this point that I felt the album really started to escalate to a peak emotion wise, and I was pleased to hear this other side of serac.
