"Gabe's all over the map... [he]seems to be able to cover all those "styles" and pull them all off realistically (whatever the f*#@ that means anymore)... Your vocals have never sounded better and the electric guitar parts you play fit perfectly"
-relentless, Musician, Deviant
"You have done an awesome job...and the sound quality really is great. I think that the different styles of music work together and offer a variety that really keeps the album interesting. I suppose you could have written 10 or 12 tracks that sounded the same but don't all the shit pop records have 12 identical songs on them? I think that the message is very clear, anger has many faces and you can write a pissed of song in almost any style..."
-Jesse Thulin, Soundbender
"Gabe, I listened to all of Corporate Cult straight through. That is a remarkable record. Your artistry and writing, your engineering and production, your vocals and musicianship all shine. Of course I'm on board with all the sentiments expressed on this CD. Gotta think millions more are."
-Randy Spencer, Musician, Maine Guide, Columnist.
This album represents a years worth of work, using music to overcome some of the inevitable pain and frustration of attempting to navigate some truth thru a truly disfunctional cultural template. It almost became a concept album, and I suppose it still is in some ways.
At certain points, my wife would take our 1 year old son out and play with him in the car in the dead of winter for an hour or more to give me the fleeting chance for some live-mike recording time. I hope the desperation of those circumstances (which have since passed) will come thru the music in my message to the people of this 'reality'. We were not meant to live this way. We are tribal animals with a tribal destiny. We must imagine ourselves out of this madness, and help each other to remember that not all of us want to live on the 3rd mall from the sun.
