'Wealthcare' fully captures Chess at Breakfast's dark side, juxtaposing quiet moments of melancholic tension with inescapable walls of sound, seamlessly scattered throughout eight tracks. Each song on the record illustrates some form of societal or personal issue, including the death of loved ones, class inequality, mental illnesses, financial instability, and religious denunciation. In it's entirety, 'Wealthcare' explores the endurance of these experiences in a society complacent with systematic oppression and political hypocrisy as mere symptoms of existence.
