This album surprised me a lot when I decided to grab the cassette on the whim whilst craving another music purchase. I read into the creative process of the album between Jam Baxter and producer Chemo through some interviews and became astonished at the type of madness Baxter was throwing himself into for creative pursuit. I had previously enjoyed some work from Baxter but had never dived into his pool of acidic insanity that much, as I generally struggled to follow the crazy cluster of imagery he tends to spew on tracks.

Suffice to say, after some time to absorb the acid induced madness that is Mansion 38, I would probably call Jam Baxter a imagery based lyrical genius that enjoys being an oddity on the fringes of society. He breathes each word with such laid back confidence that it's hard not to get drawn in the vivid pictures he paints, his flow melting onto the often haunting, hazy experimental production from Chemo. Teeth Marks, Bulletproof and Just Us stand out in my opinion as the most enjoyable and creative tracks of them all, showcasing the strange but artistic mind of the psychedelic mad man that Baxter is

Overall I never expected this to be a contender for my top albums this year, generally preferring boom bap style hip hop, but this album might just be my favourite album of 2017 so far and Baxter has become one of my favourite artists in the High Focus roster. Looking forward to more of this insanity when Baxter and Chemo collaborate again in November
