This album paints a dark portrait of America as it exist today through exploring issues of immigration, power, tragedy, media, and more. The title "America is in the Dark" was inspired by Carlos Bulosan's "America is in the Heart" which is a novel that narrates the struggles of Filipino immigrants in America during the 1930's. In similar fashion, "America is in the Dark" attempts to shed further truth and perspective of various institutions or power and influence in addition to its impact. The tracks compiled in this album are from collaborations between MrRey and Aristyles as early as 2005.
