    Don’t be expecting any Texas harsh, desert-crusted psychedelia–this is more fields and forest music, lush electronica crafted with some awesome, mutant pop songwriting.

    The project as a whole is impressive, but it's a testament to Gonzales that his music holds up to the grand scope of his endeavor.
  3. Been Meaning to Tell You is not exactly a musical revolution wrapped in a hoodie, but it is a solid step toward legitimacy for the label and is worthy of recognition for Gonzales’ hard work.
  4. Gonzales weaves a seamless listen.
  5. Even the sunniest of good-time albums needs a source of tension, but Gonzalez has provided nothing more than a stream of pleasantry. The resulting album is immediately gratifying, but there’s nothing to keep the listener coming back.
