Glossy outer sleeve with generic paper inner sleeves. The LPs are a bit thin/light but sound exceptional. Definitely worth seeking out.

Yonderboi's first album, SHALLOW AND PROFOUND, was a great piece of downtempo, so I came to his second, SPLENDID ISOLATION with high hopes. What can I say? The expectations game probably handicapped him too much. Certainly, "All We Go To Hell" has a freakish charm with its boys choir and odd phrasing, and "Amor" has a swooning romantic tinge to its shifting time signature. There's a bit more of a pop sensibility to this album, with more vocals (such as on "Badly Broken Butterflies" and "People Always Talk About the Weather") and fewer extended jazz meditations (though "Trains in the Night" comes close) -- a mixed blessing, at best. Yonderboi once again tries his hands at covers: "Follow Me Home" and "Love Hides," but neither has the oomph of his versions of "Cantaloupe Island" or "Riders on the Storm" on the earlier album. There's an appealing darkness to "Before You Snap" -- but a thudding drum and Jack Nicholson samples will do that. "Even If You Are Victorious" shuts down the album on a head-nodding note. Excellent, despite overreaching expectations.
