August Aghast - "Bread & Roses"

Tranquil and lovely, "Bread & Roses" is a baroque pop song which features blissful melodies spread across flute, piano, harps, and more. This is truly serene material: one can almost hear the calls of birds cooing peacefully over the instrumentation; one can almost visualize the Olde English countryside sprawling in front of them. However, the abrupt transition at 1:30 doesn't sit right with me, and while I appreciate how the track develops from this point forward, the initial shift is jarring in the context of the rest of the song's peaceful structure. That aside, the track quickly bounces back and manages to retain its beauty throughout.
