EDITORS’ NOTES

The silky piano of “Like the Rest of Us” confirms we’re a long way from the bare-knuckled emo rap of God Loves Ugly. The lulling opener makes for a seductive entry into Atmosphere’s fallen world, and what follows zooms in closer on Slug’s hard-luck characters. On “Dreamer,” Ant’s determined funk fuels a tale of a striving single mom; the guitar-and-voice simplicity of “Guarantees” underscores its stark portrait of working-class hardship. And on the bittersweet “Yesterday,” gospel piano brings uplift to a heartbreaking song about making amends.
