The Sweet Life Society
There's something defiantly appealing about releasing a concept album onto a world intent on playlist by algorithm. Like writing a novel on postcards then shuffling the deck.
But Sweet Life have always followed their own instinct.
This is a single body of work that creates its own context. It's best heard from beginning to end and was dreamed up by a group of musicians whose intent was crafting a cumulative story (a journey to use the cliche) in sound and sequence with highs and lows, light and shade, a beginning, a middle, an end. Dark Side of the Moon simply doesn't work as well on shuffle.
