    The record is rooted in the whimsy and oblique satire that is familiar to fans of of Adeney’s work. Stand-out tracks like “Someone Fixed The Game” and “People Can Change” display a maturity that signals Wax Mannequin is indeed more than capable of reaching wider audiences without
    sacrificing any of his edge. With Have A New Name, Christopher Adeney has made a
    Wax Mannequin album utterly necessary for this moment in time. Challenging and earthy, funny and heartbreaking, in search of answers yet rooted in hard-earned wisdom.
