Fishing Blues is still growing on me, so I am not sure if it's my favourite Atmosphere record yet. I am liking the more upbeat attitude of this album, and the song "Ringo" is one of my favourite Atmosphere tracks in a long time. The vocals are great, there's some catchy hooks on here, and as usual, the beats are their own unique and wonderful animal. My only small gripe, is I wish some of the tracks from the year previous would have made it onto this album, even if they had been bonus tracks, as they are also amazing tracks.
