  1. Word, this is dope – a little too upbeat for my laid back tastes – a lot of dance floor influence i think, but good none-the-less.

  2. They have their place, but for me it’s getting kinda old mostly hearing only dark moody instrumental albums, the happy here is a nice change.

  3. It would be interesting to see how much of this album is actually “upbeat” and “happy.” Any fan of Blockhead knows he’s a champion of the darker, chilled beat style.

    Always a fan of Blockhead.

  4. Yo Baggy, I’d honestly say the entire album is upbeat and sunny… Its really surprising. And word Noyz, the darkness does get a little exhausting after a while.

  5. Yeah you know I was going by memory on that one. There are a couple more sombre tracks, but ultimately the bpm stays up there and there is a lot more of an open air feeling than some of his past stuff. “Music By Cavelight” was actually really really stuffy… Hard to explain.
