I managed to get my grubby (digital) hands on the METAFIVE album that got cancelled after Cornelius’ supposedly mostly embellished? but still very weird and concerning bully allegations came up last summer. You only got it if you had tickets for the concert tour that I think also got cancelled, physical release only if I’m recalling what I was told correctly.
The album is pretty Leo “frontic” on the front end , Yuki comes in for more vocals past track 5.
I wish I had something more interesting to say than it being a really easy listen. Them being able to put out new unique sounding songs each release, if you have an experience with any two names attached to the project, you are going to have expectations that are surely going to be met but not necessarily exceeded. This is probably the album that has surprised me the most so far (in the best way possible).
The wealth of experience with musicality really lets them do a lot of stuff with story telling. Lots of different narratives across the tracks some heavy some playful- but all the tracks want your body moving while listening. This is sick album to tour own. Too bad.
