Recent media praise for 2023’s Repine Forest:
“Sonically this is a genre spanning masterpiece that flirts with electronica, dabbles in some indie rock, and has a bit of alt rock flavor to it. The vocal range displayed throughout is on point as it shows limitations are not in, I Forget Myself’s vocabulary as he is a talent to behold. The album can be found on a multitude of streaming platforms throughout the world, and I for one hope that he finds an audience that appreciates his genius as the album deserves to be heard far and wide by the masses.” – Red Rock Magazine
“Vocally this album is outstanding as the range of the vocalist is immense. Full on rock vocal arrangements and alternative rock pop vocal styles are not beyond the talents of the singer and he switches from one to the other with ease. Slight distortion on some of the vocals during the album give a slight grungey vibe and with layered backups the songs really do have depth and dynamism. It may be a cliché, but this album really does have something for everything, and, because of this, I think it will appeal to a wide range of listeners. It is easy to listen to and great for having a little dance or headbang around the living room, depending on which track you are listening to.” – The Metal Asylum
“Repine Forest does not stop delivering one rich mix after the other, showcasing the skills of the songwriter, drummer, and producer at hand. All of the 11 songs on the album feature larger-than-life, pounding drums, terrific, detailed production, and the quick wit and sharp songwriting skills of I Forget Myself, making for a rewarding listen for the lovers of Linkin Park, and similar, modern, alt-rock acts with similar leanings.” – Rock Era Magazine
“Washing dark rock with acid and space rock, the artist creates a haunting soundscape. And tempers it with his despondent vocal slants. Alongside the stream of consciousness vocal tangents run the texturising team of beats and bass lines. Progressively turning up the intensity, the track becomes powered by rolling beats, high power shreds and a resonant bassline. It conceptualizes the aspiration to thrive and prosper in the lyrics, “I only ever wanted to be more than myself.”” – Good Music Radar
“The heavy guitar riffs combined with synths in different tones set the tracks apart. But what pulls them together are the vocals. The light and airy distorted vocals evoke a certain depth and grunge in the rather bold yet ambient instrumentals. To balance the reverberating depth, the drums replenish the space with their thrumming pace.” – Illustrate Magazine
“The entire album takes listeners on a journey through alternative rock, indie rock, hard rock, classic rock and more—all while maintaining an overall mellow tone and feel throughout the entire record.” – Indie Rock News
“ [the] new album, Repine Forest, is an alt-rock pop masterpiece. It’s a perfect blend of alternative rock, indie melodic pop-rock, and hard rock—with plenty of male vocals thrown in for good measure. The album has an anthemic quality that will get you singing along with every track.” – Rock Charts
“With his fifth album in just three years, I Forget Myself proves that he is a prolific and talented artist, and one that is worth paying attention to. With his upcoming live debut later this year, it’s clear that I Forget Myself is an artist that is dedicated to his craft and is constantly pushing himself to create new and exciting music. Repine Forest is a must-listen for fans of alternative rock and indie music, and is sure to be one of the standout albums of the year.” – Plastic Magazine
“With Repine Forest, I Forget Myself has once again proven himself as a versatile and talented artist who is unafraid to experiment with different styles and sounds. His ability to seamlessly blend various genres and create a unique and cohesive musical experience is a testament to his creativity and musicianship. As he continues to evolve as an artist and expand his fanbase, I Forget Myself is undoubtedly one to watch in the indie music scene.
… I Forget Myself is a multifaceted artist who has made a name for himself through his powerful and introspective music, engaging online presence, and unwavering dedication to his craft. With the release of his fifth album, Repine Forest, he has once again demonstrated his ability to create compelling and evocative music that resonates with listeners on a deep and personal level. Whether through his music, writing, or online content, I Forget Myself continues to inspire and connect with his growing fanbase, leaving a lasting impact on the indie music scene.” – 1111CR3W
