Lies On The Prize


No Video


Probably the best album Musebox has ever asked me to review. Mike Feuerstack makes music that gets far too little attention considering how incredible it is. I don't want to step on anyone's toes but...who's his manager? Anyways, Lies On The Prize is a phenomenal album. Though its roots may lay in the dated tradition of 90s indie-rock, the aesthetics are updated enough and the quality of the songwriting is timeless, with lines like, "You've got your youth/Though that will fade/Can you keep me safe and warm/if the kettle whistles along with the fire alarm," sending shivers down your spine. If not now, then maybe one day people will realize how incredible this album is; I'm talking Neil Young shit right here.
