Joe Mendonca If you were fortunate enough to have encountered The Unicorns back during their golden years, you will find much satisfaction in Alden's further work. Brilliantly composed, playful, and humorous seem to be Alden's signature. Dare I say, this may be the best album he has ever released. And that voice - Do yourself a favor and let it croon into your ears.

Cpt. Harvey Milk From Unicorns, to Clues, to just Alden. Thank you so much for continuing to make your music available. You have inspired and informed a great portion of my young(ish) life.

P.S. Would love to see you down in Texas one day.
