What folks are saying about FLUX CAPACITOR:
"Kom records swarthy urban folk songs...His latest record, Flux Capacitor is like an all-ages dance party in a hall that doubles as a viewing room for a wise-cracking undertaker who still thinks about the dog he had when he was 10." - GLOBE & MAIL
"Flux Capacitor takes the cake as The Burning Hell's most joyous album...skewed, ramshackle pop, while acoustic guitar, horns and violins step to the forefront." - CHARTattack
"Every song on the album is uniquely beautiful...lyrics are charmingly clever and blatantly autobiographical. Flux Capacitor is one of the greatest albums I’ve heard in quite a while." - THE SCOPE
"This album is like a house party on your eardrums." - ZUNIOR DAVE
"With Flux Capacitor, The Burning Hell present innocence and experience as a jazzy cabaret, allowing us to kick up our heels and drink to the glories of DeLoreans and scrunchies, the better to drown our grown-up cares." - SOUND ON THE SOUND
