"So be it. As a multi-instrumentalist/vocalist and producer, Bethancourt comfortably inhabits a variety of personae across the span, from the ethereal jab-fuzz of "Naked and Rolled in that Rotten Dirt" to the organ-led seven-minute self-jam "The Voyage of Psyche," which sounds improvised on top of its drums - a rare feat for a track invariably recorded one layer at a time to feel made up on the spot - dropping hints in "Sinphony" of the post-grunge-and-still-shimmering "All of the Saints Will Sin Again" only before "Summer Rain (Will Fall)" noodles out like a Beatles Get Back jam that Peter Jackson found and the prior "Born on the 3rd of July" lights its fuzz on fire with classic urgency.

The droning and spacious "Echoes Flow" caps side A and the even-more spacious and atmospherically weird keyboard piece "(Golden) Kiss Divine" answers back on side B, so there's some underlying structure even where it least feels like it, but "The Resurrectionist" at the outset sets up open expectations and whether it's the hard, low piano notes before the freakout in "Golden" or the alternate-universe strut in "Naked and Rolled in that Rotten Dirt," Mathew's Hidden Museum indeed offer a host of treasures for close examination and study.

Or, you can put it on, be like, 'Oh hey this is some weirdo shit right here' and just dig on it as it happens. Totally up to you. The album seems cool with it either way."
