As Archy once said:
Don't forget you're not alone.
'Man Alive!' is there.

In a year full of
isolation, Archy could
have added to the

void. Yet, Man Alive!
is an album full of hope
searching for one's self

This time painting the
poignant romance, the crushing
self-doubt and utter

confusion at the
relentless world with a coat
of pure catharsis


Musical relief
from our heartless surroundings.
A dulcet daydream.

No album has ever
made me feel more complete.
Thanks Archy Marshall.
