An album about depression and the various stages it takes me through. From melancholy, through to a deep, droning dread into a hopeless screaming noise and finally back to where I started.

It is not a happy album.


released March 7, 2015

All music composed and produced by Scott Elliott.

Special thanks to Jack Morley for inspiring me to create an ambient release and letting me use his equipment to record "Dread" and "Defeated Sanity."

Track Name: Loneliness
Feeling isolated, regardless of who is there for you.
Track Name: Sunlight Streaming Through A Window Pane
The bittersweet sadness of a close friend trying to get through to you, knowing their inability to help you hurts them. The loneliness subsides a little, but not by much.
Track Name: Melancholy
The bittersweet feeling begins to subside. Everybody is asleep. A slightly more maudlin mood overcomes.
Track Name: Staring At The Ceiling
Sleep fails to come. Mood darkens. No matter what you try it just gets worse. Your head begins to scream.
Track Name: Dread
What if it never ends?

What if you're like this forever?

The feeling can no longer be described as "sadness." Overwhelming negativity. Fear. Panic. Dread.

This is what depression really is.
Track Name: Defeated Sanity
Broken. Detached from reality. Hopeless.

A brief reprieve.

It comes back worse.
Track Name: Back To Where I Started
The worst of it ends. But the cycle continues. And so we go back to the beginning.
