Several months ago, I rapped about CHASSOL's then forthcoming album, calling it my "most anticipated release of 2012". And now it's been with me for several weeks, and goddamn it, this fucker delivers! I've been listening to that album X-PIANOS pretty much non-stop.
When every song on an album is conceptual, and genuinely beautiful, and completely trippy, all at the same sweet time, well to me it's like Christmas and my birthday all at once.
