Up there with Joe's best -- it feels like it pulls from every record he's done before while still being completely distinct from any Cymbals record in the way it combines the psychedelia and accessibility with some of the lushest, most ornately arranged music I've heard. Plus the guitars still rock, the solos fucking slap, and the ballads somehow slap just as hard. The narrative based lyrics also hit a sweet spot in Joe's lyricism -- direct but inventive, descriptive and endlessly compelling. Emmanuel Castillo
Simultaneously scrappy & divine. Simultaneously earthy & angular.
Simultaneously in vibrancy & in darkness. PG holds multitudes in its seemingly contradictory binaries. ...really, I stan this band too hard. And also.. “End of summer and I’m still in love with her”. Just the best lyric. Autumnal youth in a (pine)nutshell. Living just outside the Pine Barrens, this band is in my blood (brother ampersand). hannyram
