    Reflect. Time. Loss. achieves its aim handsomely, with many a moment to stop the heart of its listener, in doing so adding another dimension to Maps as a musical outfit.

    His ability to combine ethereal tunes and immersive atmospherics with a hint of MBV remains strong on the likes of "Wildfire" and "howl Around"--but the emotional dynamic has been transformed by the added heft. [Jun 2019, p.30]

    With all of the organic classical instrumentation employed here, the electronic side of Maps is significantly downplayed, lending Colours the added weight of strength in acoustic numbers, an effect that has consistently delivered emotional resonance to listeners for hundreds of years.

    It's an excellent, rewarding album that could only have come from an artist with the determination and fortitude to realize such a clear and distinctive vision.

    The result is an often thrilling, semi-symphonic ode to joy that peaks with ‘The Plans We Made’, a lilting trip-hop nursery rhyme on which Chapman sighs through the line “there’s only so much I can do” like a man who’s suffered a thousand defeats and still maintains his optimism.
