The Top Ten

1 The Book

From the intro, this song easily overtakes anything else on the album to me. The much groovier sound this one has makes it utterly unforgettable, with the keyboards bringing it up that much further. The percussion is also to be noted as high quality here, becoming energetic while still maintaining the extremely chilled out nature of the album as a whole. - kempokid

2 Tezeta

I like the contrast between the optimistic vibe the song has throughout, but with a slightly offbeat feel to the chorus, which almost sounds like some sort of occult chanting. As well as this, the melodies present are great. - kempokid

3 Countdown

As the proper start to the album, I find myself enjoying it quite a bit, really calming, but with a nice bit of soloing near the end that sounds really nice. - kempokid

4 Dusk to Dawn on Lygon Street

The bassline is extremely prominent, as well as really good. Not much to say, but it's a good song all around. - kempokid

5 A Journey to (S)hell

The building intensity of this that all ends up suddenly stopping and calming down immensely is all around cool, and serves as a momentary increase in energy before it goes back to being calm. - kempokid

6 You Can Be Your Silhouette

A wonderful final song on the album, having everything all come together to make an extremely pleasant song to listen to. - kempokid

7 Rolling Stoned

I love how this song continues perfectly from A Journey to (S)hell, and slowly becomes more offbeat, offkey and all around discordant. - kempokid

8 The Spider and Me

Easily the 'prettiest,' happiest sounding song on the album, absolutely wonderful and incredibly relaxing. - kempokid

9 Cranes, Planes, and Migraines

One of the best interludes on the album, with some really nice drumming, as well as decent use of many other instruments, creating a slightly faster paced song. - kempokid

10 Sketches of Brunswick East III

This definitely does sound like a proper concluding piece, definitely a great way to close off the album in any case. - kempokid
