The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die - Illusory Walls

Sometimes, the best place to begin is at the end. If you really want to dig deep into Illusory Walls, the fourth album by The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, it definitely helps to do that. That’s because epic closer “Fewer Afraid” - all 19 minutes, 44 seconds of it - doesn’t just revisit the themes and ideas on the ten songs that precede it, but also offers a self-aware summary of the Connecticut band’s entire history. It’s the conclusion of all the stories within the record as well as a nod to all the lives that helped make them - little glimpses of everything that’s come before, on both a micro, immediate level, and a more universal one.
