May 10, 2012This album is crap. It seems to me that Jason has gone off the deep end. This record is a pile of adult contemporary pop ballad garbage. No energy, none of the things that made people like Jason's writing in the past. I saw Jason play 93 Million Miles last fall with his old band (bunch of guys from Texas) and it was awesome.

The album version of that song is terrible, and his new band (bunch of Canadian guys) has all the energy of my 93 year old grandmother. Whew, fail!… Full Review »

Apr 25, 2012Welcome to Jason's journey... I listened to this album to cover to cover and was carried away. While some might argue that songs tend to be mellow, I love it. No ups or downs... common musical and lyrical journey with no major twists or bends. The initial feel and riffs from his debut can be found in in most songs. He has managed to keep true to himself. Was scared that this album would be massively commercial with loads of electrical insensitivities.
Great tunes, interesting lyrics and awesome guitar riffs, melodies depicting his musical signature. Vividly encourage you to listen to it. Have been following Jason's career for close to 10 years now, before he was all big and famous.… Full Review »
