    Good song, incredible and trippy visuals. Can’t wait for the full album to drop November 4th.

    This and Glimpse of Us seem much more stripped back than Nectar, interested to see what the album will be like

    Same here. I wonder if the whole album will be stripped back, but I don’t know. Something about this feels unpredictable and crazy and I love it

    Filthy Frank was a classic… I miss him
    Glad to see someone else other than Evad and me is hyped for this. I’ve never seen this video lol I’ll have to watch it now

    It’s very short, only 24 minutes long so it’s really an EP and not an album. I listened to it once, and I’m not sure how to feel yet. I think this one is gonna be a grower. Die For You makes sense as the other single though. I think I like the project but something feels missing or disappointing right now. I’ll have to give it more listens, I might just not be in the right mood right now

    It's more upbeat than I thought (I guessed Yukon would be an exception) and I really dig it. Short and sweet.

    I also like beat on NIGHT RIDER but that’s about it

    Maybe I’ve just grown out of Joji but I don’t think it’s just that

    Nectar was just a lot more grand and impressive to me than this. This project is so short and similar sounding for the most part that if you’re not in that heartbreak mood I don’t think many people will listen to it often. It’s so half-baked and feels like he didn’t put much effort in conceptually, lyrically, or vocally. It’s obvious to me now why they picked Glimpse of Us, Yukon, and Die For You as singles… they are easily the best songs on the project. I’m hoping that this is just a side project and he’s dropping an actual album in 2023…

    Yeah it feels like the same level of effort as some of his SoundCloud tracks, but without the charm. Nectar certainly wasn’t perfect but it was definitely interesting
