You've broken up with your old band and are about to release your first solo album. Please write the liner notes:

Unlike "Aesthetic Barefoot Dancing" and the prodigious sophomore release of "Circus Peanuts", both recorded with 8yrsOld, Swanson's 3rd album and 1st solo move "You Can't Spell Lonely Without Kj" shows a depth and candid honesty lacking in 8yrsOld's playful (but insightful) satiric folk tunes and Balkan rock ballads. A definite must-own for your collection if you have two ears and a heart.
