SLOWS DOWN “In My Room”

Driving through the countryside of England was fun, because I would stare out of the widow and see rolling hills that seemed to go on forever. This would allow my imagination to expand and wonder off to places that were new for me.

But the truth is that the Ladder Devils do deserve to compare themselves to those bands, along with a few others, because they absolutely talk the talk and walk the walk with this record.
