Ricky, that's an incredibly appropriate environment/context for listening to that record!
I've seen Gary War play twice in the last two months, and I gotta say, the record sounds absolutely incredible live. He's a brave, brave soul.
Loving the tracks "Muscle Dysmorphia," "Find Our Way," " Care Less," "Pleading for Annihilation" and "Superlifer"'s weird, stately, baroque time-signatures and tropes. There's such a sheen to this record, but as always, and perhaps more than ever on any other of his records, incredibly meticulous layers. I really feel like this guy doesn't do anything half-ass, ever. That each moment has been carefully considered, which I really appreciate in any record. I get something new and special out of this record each time I listen to it, and it bears and is worthy of repeated listens. Such a great piece of work.
