This album was recorded between October 2007 and the summer of 2008. "Want You At All" was the first song made, as a reaction to my break-up with my then ex-girlfriend of 18 months. In the time I was working on this, I was together with another girl and then that ended shortly after. The Suite at the end is still my most favorite piece of music I've ever written and it was (roughly) designed as an outline of the highs and lows of a relationship... how somebody you love can be both a "beauty" and a "beast." Until recently I was very certain that this was my defining statement. It's very dark, but in a graceful sort of way. I still (mostly) think it's the best of the Pickup Line albums.
