Maybe its because I'm new to the whole music business thing, but I cannot simply feign a passing interest in being praised on year end lists by journalists whose words and thoughts i have (quite literally) invested so much in over the years...

So I, with great pride and hopefully some humility, refer you all to Simon's Year end wrap up . I usually wait for this list with great anticipation each year... so to see myself on it was nothing short of absolutely thrilling...and I'd also like to thank Mark @ K-punk for his review. I know I know musicians aren't supposed to care what journalists think...but I suppose there's nothing I can do...It's a strange time for music, I doubt there has ever been a time when the sheer art of criticism has so far exceeded what music was being produced...I won't apologize for the state of music...but I will offer my sincerest thanks and wishes for a good new year to all the bloggers and journalists who've quite literally made my year!

check this Tufluv review out....

I don't know what is weirder the fact that the new ep is compared to goat herding/ the sounds of indigestion/miami vice
or
the fact that (I think ) this is a positive review...

although it must be said that saying that I sound like "daryl hall with a cold" is easily the greatest thing that has ever been written about me
