The first album from Cloaked Characters is more of a compilation of scrapes and experiments from the lab. Most songs were written several years before recording. CCZ felt that no matter how eclectic the collection or ruff the edges, this collection of songs represents the unfiltered trial and error of finding a sound. Some songs have less production value but were kept to show the growth from beginning to end. Beats range from piano ballads and breaks to synth horns and samples. The lyrics are mostly abstract and cadence varies wildly.
