'''The World and Its Mistress'' should be listened to while walking without purpose, sitting alone with your thoughts, or otherwise delving into the unknown however one may choose. Each song draws meaning from the elements of one's surrounding, creating a dynamic scene in any atmosphere in which the listener is a growing, learning protagonist. The music has much to say, and the sound provides a distinct, sensual experience. Each time listening will result in a new array of perceptions and interpretations, heavily influencing emotion and state of mind.''
