Peter "a guy who reviews stuff" Nelson-King

Stylish, funny, and enlightening. Loved every minute of it.
In a world of increasing stupidity, sectarianism, and conformity, one could only hope for someone to say something of a different grain. With this album Ted King has succeeded admirably, offering a gateway into the world of the unsung hipsters of America trying to find spiritual guidance within the Cool in a world of idiocy. Even if you don't like the album (which is weird), you cannot deny the shining quality: Style with a capital S. If there is a neo-beat movement out there, Ted King is a rising star.

Go out, sell all you have, and buy this CD
However complete you thought your CD collection, it isn't without this work. So grab some friends and a beer, don your best black beret, light up a Lucky, and enjoy the experience.
