“ I called Alex one day a few years ago, when I was first starting to think about the possibility of getting to make a record and said, "Hey man, give me a good line.” He hit me back and he was like, “Kalopsia.”, and I said, “Kalopsia, what the hell’s that?”, and he said, “It’s a condition wherein everything seems more beautiful than it actually is. ”
