If you're looking for the newest, hip, fresh, polished, well made, good, actually worth something, cool, not totally boring, indie album of 2014, this album isn't for you. But if you're looking for a lo-fi, amateurish, experimental, eccentric indie album made by a 14 year old, then this should be right up your alley. This album is a big step forward for me, I think; bigger than all the other albums I've made. It certainly isn't my magnum opus masterpiece that will define my work for the ages, but at least it's not like my first. Geez, I just got the chills.
"Best record you've made so far. Still some potholes here and there, but some of the tracks are easily some of the best I've ever heard from you and I think they're fantastic." - Drew Smith (Theo's Mystic Robot Orchestra, Bad Kids to the Front, You Are Already Dead Records, etc)
"Your best work so far." - ProgArchives member Polymorphia
"Your best so far. You are definitely improving at a good pace, Andrew. I liked it." - Tanner Boyle (Chewbacca and the Chekhovs, Ellen Degenerant)
