    The album is sort of an homage to classic musicals from the 70s and 80s, and musically, it succeeds wholeheartedly, with only a couple of weak tracks on the LP. But as a story, it can be difficult to latch onto the plot, due to the fact that the LP doesn't contain any dialogue, and that all of the songs written for the musical aren't included on the LP.

But as a story, it can be difficult to latch onto the plot, due to the fact that the LP doesn't contain any dialogue, and that all of the songs written for the musical aren't included on the LP. All of the collaborators on the album perform quite well, with members from Yeasayer, Man-Man, MGMT, Dirty Projectors, Vampire Weekend, Suckers, and more making appearances. I would recommend this album due to it's very well crafted songs, as well as it's great theatricality. The only real downfall for me was the lack of story presented. It's there, but hard to grasp. 8/10 Expand

    Break Line is a musical without an audience, and its creators might be better off if it fails to find one.

    It boasts a refreshing and inclusive, old-fashioned '70s style prog-pop vibe.

    It's worth a listen for its high points--but it needs more unity.
