” And Act Three: “Ascent Through Clouds,” where he finds peace in his own consciousness.
The album ends with this final note: “And now it’s getting late / it’s time to say / the projection has faded away / and in its place, I see you.”Unlike this final, ‘you,’ Lonstreth’s inspirations for the album lack transparency. “The three of them know how to talk about experience,” he explained.
But when Longstreth started talking about his work, the reality set in that he was just a musician who happened to go through a sad and public breakup almost four years ago.A lot of the ‘you’s’ and the ‘I’s’ in my mind, when I was making it, are interchangeable.It was really cathartic, and I feel like the journey that I went on when making it, and trusting in making it, is mirrored a little bit when you listen to the album.”There are a total of nine songs on and Longstreth describes them as being three different “acts.” The song titles themselves pretty obviously sum it up. The most obvious answer is to let them flow like the Icelandic waterfalls in Justin Bieber’s “I’ll Show You.” Bathe in them. This is all to say: Maybe what we need right now is another breakup album from a male vocalist. But on the flip side, while it can be cathartic to see and hear men, particularly white men, suffer—most often at the hands of their female ex-partners (who most certainly dumped them)—one cannot help but wonder if the other side of the story gets drowned out in the process.
