"Bodies the second entry is a wonderfully arranged track, built up guitar strumming and harmonic vocals create a sonic ambience of warmth, a feel good track of the highest quality, made even better by the artists great vocals.
"Devices offers a sudden turn on the project with tones of UK drum and bass, the song is a well received alternative interlude on the album.

The violins are beyond impressive, his vocals warmer than ever with a soothing tone every step of the way. A clear album highlight and likely one of the artists best tracks to date. The song is a track you can listen to on repeat and never want to stop listening.
"Blue is a laid back settled acoustic jam, a nice contrast in pace from the previous number. The final number is "Flatline"the perfect closing number. A true song of inner reflection built up with delicate acoustic guitar, bass and percussion.
