If The Pylos Contingent was Ornstein's Puppy's first universe album, Puppy is the second. However, this next chapter of Ornstein is so much more than just another speck in the mosaic of the group's cosmological phase; with this release the music was imbued with the spark of life and evolved into a quasisentient entity of dreamlike proportions. Puppy is a force of love in the true sense - it is affection, but also pain, bitterness, regret and longing, and it is guaranteed to leave an imprint on the listener that will haunt them for an undetermined length of time.
