"As the title indicates, Darin Murphy did this on his own - and was he ever committed. Solitarium rushes out of the classic American power-pop school that includes fellow Texan Brad Jones, C.Gibbs and Jason Falkner, but Darin's slack or taut tunes are unique.  If you can remember when Bowie was any good or why Todd Rundgren used to matter, then Murphy's law will prevail and you'll play him to death."
