"iTunes reviews"

a great album, all the way through
by batgirl0816

"I've only known about this band for a few weeks but I will be a fan for life, if they keep producing such sophisticated and talented music. Their sound is unqiue and beautiful. Not since The Receiving End of Sirens have I been drawn to a band so completely. Their lyrics, their music, their's amazing. SoTSoG are true artists and musicians."

"Be sure to tell your friends you found them first....."With Anticipation" is sure to become an indie cult classic. With sharpened hooks and intelligent guitar work throughout the length of the album, "Ballad, "Speak Japanese", and "Empty Vessel" give hope to a genre saturated with auto tune and hair product. - 8.5/10"

Finally!!! Something worth listening to!!!
by Seth Henderson

Rarely in life does something change ur perspective on how u truely look at ur self, friends, and just ur life as a hole. Well, this is it! I have been more than blessed to have been able to work, record, and just genuinely be friends with all of them over the past 6 months. And I can truely say that it is my favorite album I've heard in many, many years!! I'm honostly someone who picks music apart when I hear it, and I don't know why, but I do. So it's hard for me to find something that I dont get pissed at, when I hear it. Not only one song, but the ENTIRE ALBUM!!! I love every single one of these songs and will listen to them all, for a long time. I wish nothing but the best for all of these boys! Can't wIt to see what's in store for them in the future!! - iTunes
