about

"Quite awe inspiring, to be honest, as the textures and arrangements used are often quite inventive." Scott Homewood, www.rockandrollreport.com

Matt Howarth of www.soniccuriosity.com writes: "This release from 2009 features 79 minutes of homey rock music. Grinding guitar, sneaky electronics, and spry percussion generate enticing progressive rock tuneage.

The guitar earns the dominant role with its versatility, whether delivering sultry chords of a soothing nature, or belting out searingly memorable riffs rich with intense delight. The electronics serve as a glue bonding everything together, frequently functioning from a subtle vantage immersed in the mix.

The percussion is vital to these tunes, providing agile locomotion and motivating a sense of pep which fits nicely with the rest of the instrumentation. A percentage of the songs feature smooth vocals, often examining life in the modern world--but tinged with a bizarre slant, such as a man lamenting that everybody likes his doppelganger more than they like him.

These compositions are generally rock tunes, but once filtered through Arnold's talent they present with an eclectic edge. The melodies are durable and attractive, made even more appealing by their off-center delivery, which elevates them from traditional fare with more inventive structure and a dedication to progressive performance."
