|What others are saying about Telethon’s ”The Grand Spontanean: A Tale Told In Five Acts’:
Billboard: “The Grand Spontanean soars with robust emo anthems that take cues from the twin-guitar attack of Thin Lizzy and the heartland sentiment of Bruce Springsteen.”
Punknews: “The Grand Spontanean is likely the most painfully overlooked LP of 2017. It’s ambitious and takes risks, but succeeds at virtually everything it attempts.”
The Alternative: “Telethon‘s The Grand Spontanean is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious albums of 2017.”
Shepherd Express: “… a mammoth, utterly audacious marathon of a record…It includes interpolations of No Doubt and Carly Simon songs, a recitation of the Franz Kafka short story The Sudden Walk, several straight-up ska numbers and comes packaged with a 23-page playbill. If that all sounds like something that might be up your alley, it will be.”
Milwaukee Record: “Telethon’s latest demands attention.With an inventive idea and admirable execution, The Grand Spontanean effectively transforms this unknown pop-punk project from a band you’ve never heard of into one you have to hear.”
BrooklynVegan: “It’s a similar kind of high-spirited, unselfconscious, ambitious pop-punk album to Jeff Rosenstock’s great WORRY.”
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: “Telethon has made a consistently strong and catchy album — all the more impressive given its 90-minute run-time — that successfully spans from Springsteen-esque heartland rock to punchy pop punk to back-porch country.”
New Noise: “…somehow Telethon, a four-year-old band from (Milwaukee) with only two records to their name, have completely bucked every stereotype about concept albums with their 30-song rock opera.”
ThePunkSite: “The Grand Spontanean is sprawling, ridiculous, eccentric and overblown, and if I’m honest I loved every minute of it.”
UnderAirMedia: “This album is absolutely insane. Everything here is truly a masterpiece.”
Hartford Courant: “There’s a welcome roughness to the thing, but some fine drama and musicality, including amusing swipes from Pachelbel’s Canon and James Bond movie themes.”
“We made a sprawling five-act rock opera about the internet, culture, human relationships, and the apocalypse. We hope you love it.”- Telethon
