This is the type of album that should be listened to in your bed at night when your window has been open all day and your room is freezing but you're tucked away nicely under the covers. That's what this album feels like.

Favourites: thousand eyes, home with you, mary magdalene, fallen alien (standout), cellophane

Joey is actually soooooo talented it's ridiculous. He does it all here on this record. To the slow, introspective cuts like Like Me and On & On to the hard hitting Paper Trails and Christ Conscious.

Favourites: Save The Children, Paper Trails, Big Dusty, Hazeus View, Like Me, Christ Conscious, On & On, Curry Chikcen
Least fav: Escape 120
