What others are saying about Telethon's ''The Grand Spontanean: A Tale Told In Five Acts':

Billboard: "The Grand Spontanean soars with robust emo anthems that take cues from the twin-guitar attack of Thin Lizzy and the heartland sentiment of Bruce Springsteen."

Punknews: "The Grand Spontanean is likely the most painfully overlooked LP of 2017. It's ambitious and takes risks, but succeeds at virtually everything it attempts."

The Alternative: "Telethon's The Grand Spontanean is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious albums of 2017."

Shepherd Express: "... a mammoth, utterly audacious marathon of a record...It includes interpolations of No Doubt and Carly Simon songs, a recitation of the Franz Kafka short story The Sudden Walk, several straight-up ska numbers and comes packaged with a 23-page playbill. If that all sounds like something that might be up your alley, it will be."

Milwaukee Record: "Telethon's latest demands attention.With an inventive idea and admirable execution, The Grand Spontanean effectively transforms this unknown pop-punk project from a band you've never heard of into one you have to hear."

BrooklynVegan: "It's a similar kind of high-spirited, unselfconscious, ambitious pop-punk album to Jeff Rosenstock's great WORRY."

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: "Telethon has made a consistently strong and catchy album — all the more impressive given its 90-minute run-time — that successfully spans from Springsteen-esque heartland rock to punchy pop punk to back-porch country."

New Noise: "...somehow Telethon, a four-year-old band from (Milwaukee) with only two records to their name, have completely bucked every stereotype about concept albums with their 30-song rock opera."

ThePunkSite: "The Grand Spontanean is sprawling, ridiculous, eccentric and overblown, and if I'm honest I loved every minute of it."

UnderAirMedia: "This album is absolutely insane. Everything here is truly a masterpiece."

Hartford Courant: "There's a welcome roughness to the thing, but some fine drama and musicality, including amusing swipes from Pachelbel's Canon and James Bond movie themes."
