I think this is our best album to date, says Symphony member Cookbook. Not only do we explore more topics than ever before, but our sound and style has grown as well. I love how the album is broad in the sense that it has the fun stuff, the party stuff, but some deep stuff as well.
This time around we took 4 months and shut everything else off, and made this album together, he continues. The result is a good blend of the 5 of us, all really contributing on every level. Weve been in this for a while, and seen the ups and downs, and were still here to say never give up on your God-given dreams.
