look at all this nice shit that people have to say about the new record..."If I were a sommelier, I would sound like a total idiot trying to describe Astronautalis...but his languorous baritone and adventurous songwriting make Astronautalis a refreshing and unexpected treat."-DeathAndTaxesMagazine.com"Just as the Rhymesayers and Anticon collectives persuaded adventurous rock fans to explore hip-hop, Astronautalis may just turn a few rap fans on to the sounds of American Gothic. "-npr.org"I suppose the most untouchable of the Anticon crew, Why?, would be the closest comparison, but with his gravely delivery, Bothwell is closer to Tom Waits, had the junkyard troubadour been raised on a steady diet of '90s indie rock and the Def Jam catalog. "
and"I wish all records were this exciting.
-The Portland Mercury
"this album is a complete masterpiece"
"Taking us from the life of a desperate conman, to a pre-Ian Fleming tale of an espionage during the Opium Wars, then to the heresy trial of William Robertson Smith, to Washington on the Delaware…if Thomas Pynchon picked up mic at Scribble Jam, he might sound like Astro in Pomegranate.
"we absolutely love it!"
"At first, particularly coming from The Mighty Ocean, the departure can be jarring, but just give Astronautalis a few moments to flash his conman's pearly whites (or gold grill as may be the case). He'll have your ears in bed with him before you have time to think.
"this album is great.
"The poppy thrills of Gnarls Barkley meet the literate ache of Tom Waits in an album that will make Bothwell's career"
"This isn't another introspective angst driven tale instead it's sad gothic tales that transcend time. Somehow Astro can talk about the Opium trade and it sounds more personal then most singer song writers. Between John [Congleton] and Andy the stories are a history lesson and the musical arrangements are ahead of the time resulting in music as vivid as Tim BUrton on top of his game. Maybe even darker and def. more sentimental and raw.
"Buy it. Andy deserves your money.
-someone i don't know who bought the album from amazon
