Amidst the backdrop of a global pandemic, political unrest, and wildfires raging across the western United States, Josh Klinghoffer hunkered down and found the inspiration to complete the sophomore album for his latest project, Pluralone. The release, aptly titled I Don't Feel Well, comes on the heels of Pluralone's critically acclaimed debut album, To Be One With You. In some ways, I Don't Feel Well seems like a natural progression of the Pluralone project, just as dynamic and fluid in it's arrangements, but more focused in it's execution. Similar to To Be One With You, Klinghoffer leans heavily on piano and keyboards for the foundation of most songs, with some outliers such as the anthemic guitar-heavy track, "Mother Nature." The album weaves sparse rhythmic moments with grandiose arrangements of strings and layered vocals, showcasing Klinghoffer's impressive range and signature falsetto. By all accounts, I Don't Feel Well is a reflection of the trying times we find ourselves in; often dark and reflective, but with a glimmer of hope and underlying themes of solidarity, something we could use a bit more of these days.
