    I wasn't really digging this the first time I sat down to listen to it, but after giving it another listen to it's an album I can really appreciate. The really mellow vibe is what sets it up for me. Definitely one of TFL's best albums, but I still think YBTPR and Embroynic are better in my opinion.

All that aside, this is a really good album but kind of disappointing coming after Zaireeka and Clouds Taste Metallic!
