Well today (now yesterday since its 1 in the morning @-@) was the day. The U.S release of The Golden Echo! This morning as soon as Zia opened I ran in there to retrieve my copy of the album! Then after a long day of work, I come home to find my limited edition vinyls and lithographs have arrived. Kimbra had teased us with pictures of what the artwork would look like so I had an idea of what to look forward to, but man, when you have it in your hands and you open it up…that’s when I truly appreciated what a real piece of art this was. The lovely thank you and dedication of the record was poetry in itself. The front cover and inside take you into another world of reflection and a sense of endlessness. All of this even before the record is played! Kimbra accomplishes her goal to take listeners on a journey from start to finish. An unforfettable, timeless, magical journey filled with intricate harmonies and unexpected twists and turns. Dont expect to know what comes next, because surely Kimbra will take you in another direction. I am truly grateful to Kimbra and every single person (too many to name one by one!) who helped her share this with the world. All the hard work everyone put into it definitely shows. Kimbra has forever changed the way I listen to music. She has influenced me to change my perspective and view things with a new set of eyes. I cannot thank her enough.
