‘Postfaktische Allianzen werden offengelegt, die Selbstinszenierung als Opfer auf allen Seiten in Wort und Bild präsentiert, und bevor der Zuschauer ein Kontextschleudertrauma hat, tritt wieder Brandon Miller mit seiner Gitarre auf und schwingt sich in seinen Liedern auf beruhigend metaphorische Ebenen. Seine Poesie ist weise-tröstend, was als ästhetische Aussage ja auch schon wieder seine Untiefen hat.’

‘Post-Fascist alliances are revealed, self-portrayal is sacrificed on both sides in words and pictures, and before the viewer has a contextual whirlwind, Brandon Miller returns with his guitar and swings in his songs to soothing metaphorical levels. His poetry is wise comforting, which, as an aesthetic statement, has its shoals again. ‘
