Left Brain became slightly more serious with this album, which shows them at their most poetic and most accessible.

Left Brain’s best pop performance, this album features a new vocal versatility from singer Amy Guskin and arguably her best vocal performance on record on the haunting song “Fear Itself.” Punchy power pop in songs like “Channel Sky-Yi” and “Eight Feet High” alternates with the more whimsical spirit of songs like “Being Doing Having” and “Moon Base Bop.”
