CRITIC REVIEWS

New Noise

His first solo album, Don’t Go Throwing Roses In My Grave, features a more delicate side of Barnett’s lyricism and musicianship, paving a new way in his music career, while bringing the same energy that made him so great in The Menzingers.

Kerrang!

Don’t Go Throwing Roses In My Grave is another proud notch on Greg’s songwriting belt. One that even makes pushing daisies sound good.

Distorted Sound

Taking somewhat of a radical departure from what you’re known for can sometimes be a risk in music, but Don’t Go Throwing Roses In My Grave deftly avoids any potential pitfalls, delivering an appropriately heartfelt collection of songs sure to resonate with fans of anything Barnett has put his name to already.

Upset
A grown-up album that resonates with adult anxieties and sepia-tinged nostalgia.

Once again we witness the Springsteenfication of an orgcore punk band frontman.
