This month was a true mix, to be sure. There were some songs I loved(“White Lies”, “Gaiafy”) and some I hated (“Go On”, “Kill the Lights”). The other songs averaged out. As far as a theme? Eh.
So far, the expected highlight for the series has been the emersive packaging. While, gimmicky for sure, doesn’t make it any less fun. This month, however, I feel came up short. I didn’t personally care for it. The cartoony, wood block style isn’t really my thing, and the art didn’t exceed my predisposition. I was hoping the vinyl inside would be more exciting too. “Bone” colored? Eh.
Well, not every month can be an all-around winner. Still early in my subscription to make a broad judgment really. I sitll am excited for next month’s offering!
