I Blame the Scenery

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Kurt Morris
While trying their best to dodge the comparisons through the use of a variety of instruments and angles, inevitably Reubens Accomplice's album, I Blame the Scenery, will most likely find itself thrown in the same circle as much of the Promise Ring's material.
