Editors’ Notes Originally uploaded in batches to YouTube and later self-released through Twitter, Tremendous Sea of Love finds Michael Angelakos pushing further away from convention and into his own bubble of bold, confessional electro-pop. As with all Passion Pit’s albums—and as this one’s title suggests—Tremendous exists in all caps, a toylike explosion of synths and helium falsetto that swings between extreme self-doubt and extreme self-acceptance. Ironically, it’s the album’s mellowest moments—“You Have the Right,” the rainbow R&B of “Hey K” (written for Angelakos’ ex-wife)—where Angelakos sounds most content, while his brightest moods (“I’m Perfect”) ride the human line between everything coming together and everything falling apart.
