Overall a less emotionally engaging alternative to all its current "Windmill" contemporaries, but still infinitely dance-able post/dance-punk music drenched in disdain for the socio-political situation in the UK delivered with sarcastic, snarky and entertaining spoken-word.

"Awesome single. Great size. Sound thick. Solid. Tight. Keep us all posted on your continued progress with any new progress singles or vid clips. Show us what you got man. Wanna see how freakin' huge, solid, thick and tight you can get. Thanks for the motivation."

(I realize now that this is a mixtape, but I'm too lazy to edit atm)

This is my first project of 2022, and honestly this is a pretty strong start.

‘Staring aimlessly into the sea's heart' starts off with what was my favourite RiskR track, although that position is currently under challenge by the amazing tracklist offered on here, and revisiting was genuinely refreshing and motivational– I felt a new surge of energy flow through me. Even more surprisingly, I had a much better ... read more

Been updating some of my scores, so some of them look more recent than the reviews actually are.
