Quiet candy shop done up in Rothko. Color zone gradients dissolving into one another (soft red – strawberry / watermelon; softer orange – papaya / mango; softest yellow – blonde cherry / banana-peach). The whole complex a tropical marshmallow swallowing you up between XTC & doom before being entombed in that pocket of silence... of oooos & ahhhhhs. Unbelievably relaxed, painstakingly delicate, hauntingly profound.

Flavor 43.6 / 50

Quality 18 / 20
Fine-tuned: all the dials set pretty low, & a fairly unique CBS ratio ~2:3:3 achieves remarkably soft balance.
