    It's this constant dynamic of push-pull throughout that makes Ancient Future a compelling listen.

    Willits, it seems, had discovered his match, the piece of the puzzle that gives his art a sense of completion. And Sakamoto found in Willits someone who enhances his melodies with a light enough touch as not to overtake them or muddle their natural power.

    Willits + Sakamoto deftly guide the listener through their world, invisibly prodding you along the dark river to the "Completion" that closes the album.

    This album peaks when it finds room to tilt at larger topics and tinier ones within a few short seconds of one another.
