Comment: this 15-notch album is the second in a trilogy by considering such topics as access to quality meal (as the title hints at), possibilities to moving upward the societal ladder and disparities in power and privilege. And it is largely influenced by the election of Donald Trump as president. For Shane Natalie who is behind the project it is adverse event. I have no intention to consider the last mentioned aspect but the first mentioned aspects should be more balanced within a society. Of course, total equality as an idea is a sort of utopia because people are different by their abilities, intelligence and wishes and fortitude. We must have no intention to repeat the practice of Red Khmers through a million of corpses. Given that the state as an institution should be as thin as possible and as much be presented as it is needful for a citizen. In a word, the human being needs that basic needs as vitamin enriched food, shelter and solid education could be fulfilled. And for a talented and hard-working individual there should be possibilities to move forward both educationally and therefore socially. Yet do not forget a most important thing – a human being can still be classified as animal and his/her life is a tremendous fight. The societies are still in a latent state of war, i.e all human beings are fighting against each other even if there are the appearances of collaboration. Musically the whole relies on power pop/punk rock/college rock numbers while at times adding psychedelic spices with fingertip. I wish the artist would have added more madness and hystery and exaggerated energy to the music to add more credibility to support his message. At times it chimes in a way too sabbatical mode. The sensitive outing is a bit in the discography of Quote Unquote Records.
