"This album is a gem. A throw back to when music communicated a relevant message. With a lean and clean production, "Leaving Dystopia" is about awakening the masses to the dysfunctional and controlling world we find all around us. From the first track ("I Dig You") to the last (an awesome remake of John Lennon's "Working Class Hero") the music is thoroughly enjoyable. Yes, the Beatles influence is there throughout but in a subtle and unique way. On tracks like "Brain Dead" I sensed some Pink Floyd overtones, the rocker "Soldier of Love" shades of Collective Soul along with the solo Harrison influenced and standout "Beautiful Soul" (think Harrison's "Dark Horse" album). I found the entire album unique and well crafted. Lyrically the message is powerful and relevant with Williams unabashedly making a case for more truth, peace and love in the world. "Leaving Dystopia" is a fine example of what Indie artists are turning out...This is a fine album. Beatles fans - you'll enjoy it."
