    "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

If I could put you anywhere I would
I'd put you in the lost not found for good
I'd hold you up so all could see
The measure of your misery
If I could put you anywhere I would

It's much too soon for taking any good
It's all been tied in knots and cut in to
And friends don't know how much you burn
And you don't know how much you've learned
It's far too soon for taking any good

Drag me from my home and analyze me
Coz you're really thinking that would do me good
I'll hold you up so all can see
The measure of your misery
Drag me from my home and analyze

Hold you up so all can see
The measure of your misery
