    One thing that is made abundantly clear through these eleven tracks is how large a landscape Zola Jesus occupies. The music and tone of the album are industrial and vast.

The tracks are layered so thickly that it creates a sense of losing one's bearings while listening, and the audience might have a hard time knowing which way is up through the multitudes of synths, electronic drums, and Nika Roza Danilova's gothic delivery. Then again, maybe that's the whole point.
