One guy said some really nice things.

"Subtle and sublime, Friction Bailey's seasonal album should serve as a piece of education to the mass-produced and canned Christmas music we're fed every single year. With haunting and beautiful lyricism and the sparse but impactful thread of instrumentation, this is a disc to spin not only over the holidays but any time you need a reminder just how beautiful life can be." -Jason O'Brien

Steven still makes music almost everyday.  Sometimes as Dove Pilot
