Review by DAVID WILK

June 24, 2014 certified reviewer

My overall impression

Melanie Thomas is a gifted composer, driven to write 90 full minutes of lyrics and music for this project – the kind of work that takes more “mature” artists a decade to complete and she’s done it at 22! We should all pay attention to what’s next for this phenom! And in the meantime, if you’ve not dragged your sorry butt out to see The Cave, what are you waiting for? Get thee to an opium den. Do not pass go. Do not collect 200 poppies.
