Kids See Ghosts, although the exact length of the other Wyoming releases, is by far the longest and stuffiest. All that’s really important is that this record takes risks without spazzing the news; and that we get to coolly rearrange the way we usually listen to a G.O.O.D. Music release.

However, there’s merely six pieces here, and over half the record is spent exploring similar ideas.
