colejustice A beautiful album that's impossible to pin down. Electro-swing with dark undertones, cabaret with electronica influences, trip-hop with pop melodies; good luck categorizing it.

Stephen Coates unique musical style and tormented vocals draw you into a mysterious world filled with love, loss, and death that will lead you to wonder how much, if any, of that world is real.

(Note for other supporters: I feel the album is supposed to end with Track 13, Apart. Feel free to correct me, Stephen .) Favorite track: Bringing the Body Back Home.
