"I'm 35 and I feel lost ..."
Within the confines of this compact octet of self penned songs that we are exposed to an array of lyrical gymnastics mixed with acoustic excellence in a release which balances the philosophical with personal angst within a framework of catchy tunes and impressive production. As you listen to "Life's A Trap" for the second, third and fourth time (and thereafter), you feel the influence of Bowie, Lennon and Bolan and even our beloved Jeff Lynne/ELO (as the intricate arrangements within my fave track "Climbing Down" ably demonstrate) throughout what is a quite remarkable, compact and precise piece of work. A lovely record and well worth the $7 asking price. (9/10)
