That line made me throw up in my mouth. So did the opening line of Kilojoules. But those were just lyrics, and that was only two songs. I guess what I'm trying to say about Diluvia is that it feels very delicate, both vocally and to a lesser extent, musically; I'm not necessarily referring to the lyrics. Maybe 'cute' wasn't the best choice of words.
I definitely agree that this is a major step forward for them. The album just took me a couple listens to get into. At this point, I'm fully immersed.
Oh, it's definitely an album that needs to be listened to at least twice to be fully understood. It felt pretty blah to me on the first listen. And while in some ways that's disappointing (everybody wants to feel an instant connection), I'm pretty darn happy with this album.
