“Opinions outweigh my thoughts, or maybe I just pay attention,” is one of the many monotone non-sequiturs uttered by Chaz Bear throughout the 10 tracks on Outer Peace, the best and most engaging Toro Y Moi album possibly ever. There’s a new dryness to his wit that works very well with the medium-fidelity dance grooves, funky production quirks, and signature Toro tenderness. Outer Peace will give your inner self a good good feelin’ with every new listen.
