This is alternative. It is alternative to bright, it is alternative to upbeat, it is the alternative to the kind of music that inspires happiness. Instead this album lives in darkness, splitting between two voices with a similar timbre creating an uneasy feeling and plunging with it into the depths of a tumultuous psyche.

There is an inherent struggle that starts small in the voice and builds with added instrumentation, striving forth having already planted the seed of interest and unrest. Listening to the two voices evokes a similar feeling to the that of long sharp fingernails scratching down the listeners back, leaving auditory scratches both raw and stimulating.

Listening to this album is both depressing and intriguing, giving a view of the other side of emotion, the part that struggles.
