    It veers between intimate and expansive: the chugging rhythms replicate the hum of America’s love affair with the automobile, while majestic, sweeping strings evoke its grand, widescreen vistas. [Jun 2018, p.112]

    Each track is like a new stride upon their voyage, each sound a new experience or emotion.

    Importantly for a concept album like this, the pacing is effective throughout with a good balance of light and shade, and because of this the narrative is consistently immersive and engaging.

    Vynehall has woven a rich tapestry of complimentary sounds that serves a purpose far bigger than the music itself. It's an artistic piece in the truest sense that works best as a singular whole, inviting the listener to take the time to clock off for its duration and immerse themselves fully.

    Many may still see Vynehall as a specialist in euphoric house, but this album has a richness and depth that transcends the dancefloor.

    What it lacks in real energy and excitement is more than made up for with a deep sense of place and atmosphere which truly consumes the listener.

    A departure from his previous work but still an intriguing listening experience. Less house and more complex arrangements.
