Verdict: Bipolar by Up Dharma Down

So a few months have passed.  Not much of my early thoughts have changed, except that I did think this album needed repeated listening to be truly appreciated by anyone - after suspecting that my first few listens were just part of the 'getting to know' process, infantile opinions that would gradually change over time.


New thoughts however, there are certain parts where the music tries to sync itself with a certain emotion or 'feel', only to depart abruptly into quirky breaks or stop altogether.  If you like music with a healthy supply of  quirks, inconsistent feels, unpredictable endings, and incessant wailing by a seemingly drunken female, this album is for you.

My score:
4 out of 10
