Hello. I think things about music and write them down. Sometimes people pay me for it. They don't do that here. I just like the place. Please do not slide into my DMs on Twitter or Instagram asking me to listen to your shit. Or anyone's, for that matter. That's not on. Email me: davidjamesyoungwrites@gmail.com Be cool. Please.

This is a great song trapped in a good song's body. I cannot stress enough how much stronger this would be if there was a bit more focus to it, and you tightened the screws structurally.

This is a great song trapped in a good song's body. I cannot stress enough how much stronger this would be if there was a bit more focus to it, and you tightened the screws structurally. I feel as though the histrionics and the harder-edged stuff are at odds with one another, and that a compromise needs to be reached sonically if you want to nail that Fall of Troy thing you're going for. Also, ATDI/TMV worship is cool and all, but I present you the cautionary of Closure In Moscow if you go too far down that rabbit hole.

I probably haven't listened to this kind of music since I was in high school (and you were probably in pre-school), but you've brought me right back into this world with a raised fist and a thrashing mane. The PIPES on this kid! That chorus is an absolute conquerer, too. Colour me impressed - or, at least, dye me black impressed.
