State of Mind - Land of the Blind
The wait is over: State of Mind release their 5th studio album, Land of the Blind. Somewhat unusually, State of Mind have unleashed this project in 3 stages, a process that enables fans to better digest the body of the album. In the world of streaming, State of Mind believe that the public's value of the album as a commodity has changed. The days of buying a release, skimming the booklet and listening to every song in detail have been replaced by the convenience of streaming and an industry driven by singles. The decision to release in stages, in a way that suits audience consumption patterns, was made in the hope that it creates a greater opportunity to discover songs, build memories and fall in love with a wider range of material on the record overall. In that sense, the release of the complete album represents the culmination of that three stage process. Get it here.
