Chalk FarM delivers a cohesive, endearing album with their debut release, Notwithstanding. The choruses on this record are littered with instantly recognizable hooks that filter into the brain in an almost osmotic way, creating a sense of familiarity even on the first listen. "Lie on Lie" was the only single to make a minor dent into airplay; however, with proper promotion there could have easily been five or six radio-friendly singles on this project. "Live Tomorrow," "Lesson," "Hey," and "The Girl Is Crying" all had the potential of launching Notwithstanding into the mainstream music scene.
