thoughts. B-.
I kinda feel the same way about Akeboshi’s second album as I felt about his first, only doubled. I love his voice and how his music is so calming, nostalgic and soothing (with a touch of sadness), even so it makes for a somewhat underwhelming listen. Meet along the way has some decent tracks, but not enough to keep this album from slipping into tedium. It starts off on a good note with Sky in the Pond, but falls off after that with only three tracks afterward standing out to me; Yellow Bird, Green eyes and Seeds. It’s not bad, it’s more that the latter half of the album after Green Eyes is just dull despite Akeboshi’s pleasant vocals. It’s a nice album to go to sleep to though, and I mean that in a good way.
