Teitur Lassen's fourth album is a delicate chrysalis that conceals darker matter. At first it sounds like a fragile singer-songwriter record, but as the artful arrangements reveal themselves, textured with sparse double bass, marimba and mariachi brass, they shore up his heavyweight lyrics. Lust and unattainable love are the subjects, but black-hearted visions colour his characters.

Even so, the opening song continues to loom large over the album's second half, as the listener is left wondering whether or not these lightly adorned songs are really supposed to elicit tears and cross-country travel.
