    Please be kind. Like actually kind though.

    The few solo songs I've heard by him were all great, better than most of Citizen's work imo.

    Big fan is his solo stuff, right back from the first few bandcamp singles. Will definitely get this.

    I liked Cement, Weave Me, Stain & Yellow Love, but I felt the rest was a little lacking.

    the last citizen record was the best thing they've done imo.

    I think it was too dark for most of their fans but yea it's the only thing I go back to

    Last record was one of my favs of last year. Very surprised it isn't held in higher regard around here. Dive Into my Sun, Numb Yourself, Heaviside and Ring of Chain are some of my favourite songs to come out of this genre

    I've always been more into his solo stuff than the Citizen albums. Excited for this

    Would be curious to see what he's like as a solo performer - he has very particular stage mannerisms and presence that I can't really picture in a solo setting.
  18. This sounds like screamo-Lumineers and yet it is still more listenable than most of what Citizen has done since Young States.

    Didn't care for he last album but his solo stuff has always held my interest. This should be good, I like this song a lot.

    he's playing a guitar solo, so it's mellower than when he's fronting Citizen.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    I think this is his best solo track so far, can't wait to hear that album!
