'I will look back on it as an extremely stressful time that somehow also managed to be extremely boring. The actual process of building the songs up I loved, but recording the same guitar parts over and over again to get them right and going back on mixes for weeks, I did not.'
'I hope people don't think it's s***. I mean don't get me wrong there will be one or two stinkers on there, but I'm only human and we all make mistakes, but as a whole I think it's pretty good.'
'I'm excited for it to be released and have people finally be able to hear a full body of work from me for the first time. Should it bomb completely or receive an absolute critical lambasting, don't worry, it's just my life's work up until this point...'
