    "A lushly recorded work with all of the dark, caterwauling menace of the heavier end of 4AD's output - at times sounding like some unholy hybrid of the Pixies and This Moral Coil."
    The Active Listener

    ""The Only Truth Is Music" seems a brash declaration for the title of a band's debut album. But in this case though it fits perfectly. His Name Is Codeine have produced a complex, dynamic and ambitious record which is just as comfortable trawling the sleazy gutters as it is shooting for celestial highs." Peenko

    "Forsaking where you came from…no matter where that is, even if it caused you some troubles. His Name Is Codeine is here to tell you a story about that…" Sunrise Ocean Bender

    "A tonal trip that’s leading into a landscape of nightly psych rock and shoegaze, circulating somewhere between The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Velvet Underground and Spiritualized." Clank For Breakfast

lyrics

When they'd taken everything I had ever known
I took solace in the truth, truth will drive you home
When they laughed at my mistakes and they kept me down
Started picking holes in things I took comfort from

All those who failed took a step in the light
I never failed coz I barely even tried

Well they don't care what I think
My track isn't work
And they don't care what I say and what I say it for
They want to hammer down my eyes
And push me through a door
Put some tape across my mouth and never take it off

You'd be so fun if you weren't what you are
Sometimes you're fun but you take it too far

Don't be frozen with fear
Fear will slice you up
Do chase what's right
Do chase what's right
Do chase do chase do chase do chase what's right

All those who failed took a step in the light
I never failed coz I barely even tried
You'd be so fun if you weren't what you are
Sometimes you're fun but you take it too far
I'm not in love with the way things are
I'm not in love with the way things are
