    i mean hey, he's a collaborator with purity ring and grimes, hah. he's not just some no name dude

    but he's also one of the best live performers i've ever seen

    no im just saying he plays very very small local shows here, and i didnt realize he had any tie to Born Gold just from the project name buzzing around town.

    oh yeah. that makes sense, he's criminally underappreciated.

    His voice sounds so alt-radio rock sometimes, it’s sick he’s using it to make this music

  8. Thanks for hyping up this record! I knew I'd love it when you said it's a weird pop album and somehow all the ideas work

    Lmao I hear that so clearly. I think that’s what I was listening to when I made that comment too.

    Please stop deleting my custom title Prestigious

    You Are My Compass is my highlight here, but I'm coming back to this. Parts are a little overwhelming, like Cecil has too many ideas and not enough song to fit them in, but the hooks are damn good

    It's just really all over the place! I find his poppiest tendencies to be endearing but I wouldn't fault some for thinking it bordered on a little much at times. Wasn't meant as a knock at you or anything, I was just predestined to like this given my well-documented love for all of his projects so it's cool to see how people new to him are receiving it so warmly!

    I listened to this while driving home from work last night and it was very interesting, but only All Of My Heroes Are Dead and Die Old really clicked with me immediately. I’m gonna give it some more listens, for sure. There’s a lot going on here.

    Yeah, totally sounds like TWIABP screaming. That popped into my head immediately.

    IDk if this makes sense, but Nerves Grow Rust has such an epic, cathartic feel to it.

    lo mein connoisseur Supporter

    This has been a pleasant surprise this year. Such an interesting sound and the vocals are a real high point here. I've had the choruses for You Are My Compass and Hyphen repeating in my head for a while.

    Such a shame that no notable publications bothered to review this
