Before you go and read this review I just want to say that this has taken me over half a year to complete and I am immensely proud of it. It's by far my longest review and will probably stay that way for either a while or forever, I don't really want to go through this again. While it was fun to analyse it also got stressful at times because of the pressure I was feeling writing this, hoping that people would actually read it. I hope you do read it and enjoy it.

An amazing indie singer/songwriter album that shows off Car Seat's talent. Also the album is released on my birthday so it makes me love the album even more.


I don't know why this sounds like it was made and then microwaved, but it works???!!! The sound is throwing me off, I thought a lot of this was gonna suck, but then I got used to it. I really like the writing on this album, he's got some great storytelling and lyricism in this. There were some moments where it felt maybe too much in the sound department, they can sound kind of rough on the ears to me. Even with how the album sounds, I still really like it because of some really nice riffs and ... read more
