When we heard the first single “Tears For Uriah” a couple months ago we couldn’t have been more excited for a new CYNE album. It’s been over a decade since CYNE first came into the scene, and almost five years since their last full-length LP, Water For Mars. This new album is missing emcee Akin Yai, off pursuing a solo career, but Cise Starr picks up the slack admirably accompanied by outstanding production from Enoch and Speck.
The first track opens up as Cise Starr declares he’s still the same as he flows over a minimal landscape led by the piano. The album doesn’t let up in quality as Enoch and Speck have crafted crisp beats for Cise to ride on, even as the album takes a turn into a darker mood.
