"Lance emailed me and said, "hey 5k, can we put on a show at your house?" My answer, "sure". Three weeks and a heck of alot of flyering later, Kind Of Like Spitting played in my parent's garage apartment. Now, I had never heard them before and when I asked I was always told something involving "accoustic" and "Braid". Little did I expect to be swept away as much as I did by the raw emotion, the involving story telling, and the absolute empathetic heartache you get each time Ben Barnett opens his mouth. And little did I expect to be absolutely chamred by Mr. Barnett himself. This album is perfect when you are happy, when you are sad, when you are tired, when you are wide awake, when you're all alone, or if you've got someone by your side. It's coming from the same place you are, you're not really that punk anymore and no one really understands the difference like Ben Barnett does."

"Ben of Kind of Like Spitting paints the picture of rainy afternoons, heartache and empty apartments with this release. This bare bones, often overlooked, classic is worth owning simply for the track 'Your Favorite Actor.' There are a number of great acoustic and clean tone songs along with a handful of emotional outbrust. Tear your heart out and lay it all out, what are you waiting for?"
Beautiful, and not even their best

"I felt the need to review this because no one else has, and this cd has been around for quite awhile. Kind Of Like Spitting, on this cd basically just Ben Barnett, is the most wonderfully prolific band i can think of. On this, one of the first albums, the songs absolutely strike a nerve, I sometimes resist telling people about this band because they seem like my own little secret, and I have a feeling all of their fans feel the same way. I recommend finding the newer cds "old moon in the arms of the new" and the amazing "100 dollar room" If you are into indie rock, you cant do any better than KOLS."
