    It’s an album that engages with the history of black culture while challenging the political, cultural, and musical status quos at every turn.

    EarthEE may not have the direct, off-the-cuff quality of AwE NaturalE, but its all-around richness is incontestable.

    EarthEE feels both comfortingly familiar and thrillingly alien, without striving too hard to be either. [Mar 2015, p.83]

    Both otherworldly and intensely human, it's hard to resist THEESatisfaction's singular charms. [Apr 2015, p.95]

    Tinged with jazz and various world music, this is aware and absorbing music, conscious in a broad sense, sometimes circuitous, but mostly questioning and satisfying.

    It's a challenging album in both substance and aesthetics, layered and looping sounds colliding with themes of black liberation and environmental justice, all unfolding at a hyper-mellow pace.

    Their debut was already loose enough, but EarthEE slackens to a level of shapelessness, and is gloomier with it to boot.
