It's obvious from the intro (and a quick glance at track times) that this record is going to be way more focused than In the Wild; in contrast to the wilting flower featured on the album cover, "Tasha" sounds like the petals are peeling back. Heaven then launches into two out of three collaborative tracks. Traditionally, Lustman has shied away from guest artists, a fact that he recognizes, but on Heaven, he challenged himself to work closely with both Hannah Cohen and Rosie Lowe, entrusting them to a greater degree than he would have in the past, allowing for his own personal growth in the process.
FaltyDL pumps out albums on the regular, hardly taking a breath before the next release comes out. His latest full-length, Heaven Is for Quitters, took two years to produce, but according to the man himself, that's more time then he's ever spent on anything in his life.The cliché goes that quantity can often mean sacrificing quality, but that's not the problem here. Heaven Is for Quitters is packed with a ton of good ideas; the problem is they don't necessarily fit together in the context of a single work.
