The second album from this group sticks to an environmental theme with an intricate mix of instrumental arrangements and vivid imagery within its lyrics. Each of the six musicians are talented in their own right and have moments on the album where everything aligns and the end result is impressive, but there are many times within the album where the different musical elements feel disjointed, particularly on the opener "Earth." The band is best when things are kept simple and each musical element is able to shine without being muddled by the fray. This also allows the harmonies to come through, particularly on tracks such as "Pathways."
