SOUNDS LIKE
• Phil Collins, Peter Frampton, and My Morning Jacket adopt a dog and teach it new tricks
• Glass Animals and Snow Patrol take a trip to Bahamas

HIGHLIGHTS
• Strong synth work here, really makes for solid ear candy
• Overall sound is a unique mix of organic and synthetic
• A fun record – doesn’t try to hard with a big concept, just focuses on solid tracks and upbeat vibes
• Key Tracks: Luminescent Eyes; Crystal Chandeliers; 30,000 Feet; No Better

LOWLIGHTS
• Lyrics aren’t the most original, but they’re more about sounds and vibes
• Could’ve left a few tracks off – Wonder of the World got a little cheesy
• Nearly every chorus seemed to include layered vocals — after a while the novelty sort of wore off, almost felt formulaic

OVERALL RATING
Kevin: 4/5
Derek: 3/5
