When I first saw the cover art, it was trippy. The layout reminded me of the game formats at the arcade. The pixels were congealed together, and the font was more graphic and box-like. The design, especially the letters, has a three-dimensional design. In the center or focal point of the album, there appears two brackets and a solid line dividing both of them. The symbol explicitly sends a message of the “space between.” Both the imagery and color of the album are visually attractive and enticing.
When listening to the album, I encountered one of its selections titled “The Space Between.” The introduction was chill-vibed yet eerie. However, the fusion of his dreamy and smooth vocals with the electronic beats create an aura of relaxation and ease. The usage of the synth piano and the consistent beats elicit a contagious groove. As for “Gave Your Love Away,” the high-hat percussion definitely makes a difference. My head bobs back and forth as I listen to the lyrics. The message of the song undoubtedly implants itself into your head, just because of the strange yet repetitive style of the flow of the lyrics. Overall, the album is interesting, different, and innovative.
