"Give Me Time is a patient, breathtaking work that intimately explores Anthony’s flaws and rough edges, his triumphs and maturation. Anthony looked deep into his past, wrestling with his deeply religious upbringing, the complexities of modern society, and the idea of giving up on his dream. “With Give Me Time, I wanted to look back and look in,” Anthony explains. “I wanted to find some sort of generosity, not just defaulting to anger or cynicism. Honesty became very important to me. In life, good things happen and hard things happen. I want to explore both of those places and everything in between.” - Will Schube

This album can--and should--be revisited in aeternum, and Posing for Cars should be incentive enough to ensure you do. The pacing and build of the track pulls you in, and the three minute outro sweeps you away. mccreadymatthew
