Tracklist
1. Celestial Delinquent
2. 026unconscious333s
3. 57Sto R M03
4. Devil’s in me
5. Bliss Forest

Celestial Delinquent starts off sounding somewhat like a R&B song. The arrangement is minimal with only some electronica, bass, and a constant beat. The chorus is smooth and airy, while the verses are talking-singing.

026unconscious333s features a male rapper (who is probably Jeffrey Lufkin, OLIVIA’s brother and collaborator). OLIVIA’s vocals are again calm, save for the little rapping that switches from her brother to her and then together. The verses are pretty interesting; they use this sort of sing and then a whisper like response.

57Sto R M03 is very soft and somewhat eerie. Again, the arrangement is very bare and the vocals crescendo and decrescendo in every line. That and the clarity of her voice make this a magical little piece.

Devil’s in me brings it back to rock with electric guitars and constant percussion. Vocals start off calm, but build up tension until it erupts into somewhat screaming. And the formula repeats. Plus, with the percussion, it gives the feeling of being rushed and the lyrics parallel this, ‘can’t be lackadaisical / I have to be on my way.’

Bliss Forest comes back to the ethereal pop rock ballad. The arrangement is more interesting on this track with a little piano solo over the slow bass and percussion. With no screaming or creepy carnival-esque intro, this is one of the most relaxing songs OLIVIA’s released at that point.
