すべての鳥が飛ぶわけではありません (not all birds fly) BY: Happiness

Drowned out beneath a thick, delicately placed layer of fog, すべての鳥が飛ぶわけではありません evokes a sound that pulls at a deep sense of longing, evoking a sense of hollowness using both tracks that edge between the more mournful side of classic vapor and ones that come closer to the ambient side of things. What stays consistent throughout, however, is a set of effects that make it sound as if the whole album is being played through a dense wall, making the space that it conjures feel all the smaller as everything passes by.
As the album comes to a close, the tracks exert a higher sense of dread to fill the void it created previously, the empty sound that comes from each sample bringing out a forced sort of relaxation. Paired with the darker early tracks, it almost feels like a direct attempt to sedate, as one final act to draw out what it can before the time it has to share is up.
