Baths: Romaplasm


A taste for the vocal delivery on a good chunk of Romaplasm is definitely an acquired taste, but it undoubtedly catches your attention.

The instrumentals still have the signature stutter step sound (see “Human Bog”), but there’s something missing. It’s the same factor that pulled listeners into previous albums, as varied as they were.

“Adam Copies” is fast, frantic, and fascinating with electronic beats and layers that seem to be racing against each other. The urgency of the lyrics and vocal delivery matches the instrumentals.

This album doesn’t possess the sonic intrigue of Cerulean or the musical depth of Obsidian, but artists should change, grow, create varied works. So in that sense listeners can’t really complain.

If you’re looking for something light and upbeat with contrasting intense lyrical content then this is it. There’s still something dreamlike and interesting  about Romaplasm.
