Hayden G This is a shockingly great album for being done with such limited help at the artist's disposal. I thought I was done with Indie Rock/Pop, but this unique sound and approach revived my estimation of the genre. Probable top 10 or 5 album from all year for me. You owe it to yourself to give it a look. Favorite track: Over And Under My Skin.

Track Name: Soul Insists
When I'm at my end
How I will look back on now?
The start of my real journey
Or a detour in the route?

I feel my life should be more than this
Something in my soul insists
Take advice from stars above
Make my mark and find true love

It's so far away
Before my time is nothing but a ghost
Please, I pray,
To spend it wisely on what matters most
