Lazyboy - TV

Without hyperbole, I think that I can say that this is a one-of-a-kind album. It appears to be a project of some sort, and not a true artist, but here's hoping there's more where this came from.

What is "this" exactly? This is an album that at first seems easily dismissable, but gets into your head once you spend any amount of time with it. It seems like any other electonica album, but what sets this apart is the voiceover contained on each track, each centering on a particular theme, from love, society, choosing to have a positive attitude, or simply the facts of life. Each track is designed to be provocative, make you think, and possibly be a better person once all is said and done.

There were two tracks that I especially enjoyed, "Inhale Positivity" about the importance of having a positive attitude, and "Desiderata" about the importance of having inner peace, and how to achieve it. However, to call these two the best tracks on this album really means something, as the entire album is outstanding. It's unlike anything else out there, which is unfortunate. Image how different the world would be if there was more like this, and that it was taken to heart.

Buy Lazyboy - TV from Amazon
