****
Yes, I'll be the first to admit that my album review schedule is weird.

What brought me to this album is trusty, old Spotify. A couple of weeks back, Spotify brought me back to the title track of this album, and in the past few weeks (particularly the last week), I have absolutely fallen in love with the song. That's not to say that I have ever disliked the song (when I originally reviewed it, I still gave it a 3.5* rating), but I feel that I'm in the right place in my life now to truly appreciate it.

With this new love in my life, I thought "why not try the album out for size"? I mean, the album is named after that song, surely much of the album must be of a similar style, right?

As it turns out, that was not the case at all. Nothing after the title track even sounds like "Multi-Love" at all, and while that was disappointing upon first listen, I realise that maybe now that was a good thing.

The album is just bizarre to listen to, mind-altering even, and the lo-fi quality just adds to the charm further.

Heck, listen to "Extreme Wealth and Casual Cruelty", and then listen to any other song on the album and tell me you think it even sounds like the same dude singing.

If I must say anything though, "Multi-Love" is easily the best track here, and while there were many good songs elsewhere, that is the only song I truly loved.

All in all, sure, the album is a bit of a roller-coaster, but it is a very fun one at that.

FAV TRACKS: MULTI-LOVE, UR LIFE ONE NIGHT, CAN'T KEEP CHECKING MY PHONE, THE WORLD IS CROWDED, NECESSARY EVIL, PUZZLES

LEAST FAV TRACK: STAGE OR SCREEN

7/10
