Let me start my saying, Cave Painting is very underrated. There, I said it. I know that is normally thrown out for bands that people think have potential, but I really mean it. This band is extremely underrated.
This album is so much fun from start to finish. It starts out with the lively tune, "Leaf," and eases right into the upbeat afropop tune, "Gator." It's a nice eclectic mix of tracks that intertwine into each other. Some of the tracks are a refreshing escape from the cookie cutter songs that are being produced nowadays. And some are very atmospheric, mysterious ballads that, when listened to at the right time of day, can really get your mind drifting. Is it perfect? No. There are a couple of pitch issues on the title track, "Rio," but no album is perfect, no matter what anyone says. You enjoy what you enjoy. And I thoroughly enjoyed this album. I can't wait for more releases to come.
