    Despite its title, which could suggest some sort of nostalgic exercise, Experiments in Time succeeds because it’s not concerned with channeling any particular time whatsoever.

    When the album finished, I immediately wanted to hear it again. And then again.

    There’s no attempt to make any songs appropriate for looped listens or party playlists, and yet it’s precisely because of this that Experiments In Time sounds like it could’ve only come from Willis Earl Beal, and Willis Earl Beal alone.

    Beal quietly weaves an environment for listeners to drop in on, ignore, or linger in as they choose.

    He's set himself apart as a singularly unique artist with a vision, and Experiments is the right step in fulfilling his quest.

    While there is much to admire about Beal taking such an abrupt left turn at this crucial juncture in his trajectory, in this case, it’s one that, more often than not, leads to an aesthetic dead end.
