Limited clear colored vinyl LP pressing. All The Brilliant Things, a conceptual piece about gentrification and cultural appropriation, is veteran emcee Skyzoo's first project since his 2020 EP Milestones and his first album since 2019's Retropolitan, but has been in the works for over three years. "The idea was to truly try and tackle the realities of gentrification, and this new era of cultural appropriation, commonly known as 'culture vulturing'", he notes. "The way they intertwine with one another, parallel at times, and how us as the residents of our long standing homes and creatures of these cultures have been stripped of it, or at times let it happen, and even in some cases sadly helped it happen, all for what we assumed was our best interest. The irony of it all is, despite how it all makes us feel in hindsight, one would have to admit that the orchestration of it was truly brilliant. Brutal, and heinous, but somehow pretty brilliant. Hence the title of the album."
