Eugene Sotela Realling digging this release. Great for relaxation and tuning out stress. The cassette, itself, is an art piece with its celluloid film like j-card cover. Favorite track has to be the opener "Rain Against Your Skin".

Liam Wells This has to be LSD's best album yet. The style of production, the nostalgic atmosphere, and the emotional night time vibes are all perfectly intertwined together in this masterpiece of an album Favorite track: Chronesthesia Vibration.

about

You find yourself walking aimlessly, Another typical day at work has left you down and depleted, you wake up every morning feeling like a shell of who you once were. You feel you're living your life for somebody else, a depressive overtone haunts your existence..... You go to the rooftop and look over the edge

rain begins coming in.....

You feel a strange sensation as the wind blows droplets against your face, a sense of transformation taking over as it beats in rhythmic motion against your skin.... chronesthisea sets in and you're brought back to a time when you were a child, you become disoriented and nauseous as the world shifts around you....

As everything reverts back to a state you would call "normal" you find yourself in a grass field, you see a young child playing in the park before you.... realizing it is yourself you stand in awe as you see who you once were.

Reality sets in as you realize who you are and how you lost yourself somewhere along the way.... wondering if it was worth it. As you become lost in thought you notice your childhood self has approached you and reaches out towards you....as you touch hands a bright light breaks through, your childhood self and the world around you consumed in the vibrant light....

You find yourself in an empty void now...
You've taken the form of your childhood self
There is nothing here....
You hear your heart beat steadily against your chest....

Suddenly a sound echos off in the distance; you look over immediately, but see nothing. You wonder if the silence is playing tricks on you. You try to calm your nerves, but you hear it getting closer.

From the darkness appears this strange gelatinous being inching closer and closer in your direction as the walls begin to close in, .... as it draws nearer you realize it is a grotesque form of your adult being moving menacingly towards you. It is the empty shell in which you've resided for so long now. You hear it speak to you, it tells you how foolish you're being, how you must conform if you ever want to make it, it tells you how no one will ever love you without it.... It lunges forward attacking you as it begins to consume your entire body. You feel yourself becoming suffocated as it begins to take over. You have lost all your will to continue as you begin to give in...

As the world fades to black you hear a childs voice, your own voice, asking "What path will you take, and who will you exist for? Will you let them be the masters of your destiny?"

In an act of self identifying salvation you tear at this being that surrounds you, you battle yourself mentally as you begin breaking free from these chains that bind you, in a sudden instance you break through illuminating yourself, reshaping the world around you creating your own matrix.... you become the master of your own reality as you emerge from your shell as a new being.... you question who you live for, and you decide to move on a path for YOU.....

Your childhood self separates from you and leaves you in a new adult form..... Your childhood self reaches out towards you and touches your forehead you before you lose consciousness.

You awake and find that you've returned to your present point in time, standing on the edge of of your office building looking at the world below you..... You take breath anew as you turn your head towards the sunset realizing how truly beautiful the view is from your rooftop
