Album Art: 

This album is wild! Every song has sort of a different vibe which is really fun because as you are listening through it, you are surprised by each song that comes on.  The creator behind Son Lux, Ryan Lott, has this incredible voice that he uses to change the mood of each song.  Sometimes it sounds a bit eerie while other times it sounds warmer/more endearing.  The producing reminds me of Lorde’s Melodrama album but different.  There are some twinkly synths in the more upbeat songs but slower songs contain piano combined with more bass and even some strings action. It is quite experimental, but in the good way.  There are sounds in certain songs that appear to be quite random, but after listening through a few times, they add quirkyness to this album.  Overall, it is very entertaining to listen to and at some points feels like you are in space.

Track 8, Surounded: intense build up, has some Aphex Twin vibes
