"Each song tells a story that draws upon themes of the human condition - emotions everyone has felt and gone through at one time or another. The songs explore the curious recurring human tendencies to be oversexed, over self-medicated, the lustful pursuit of material things, the fear of loneliness, sentimentality and the quest for spiritual meaning at the end of the day - in no particular order" New Reality Review
