You know you're in trouble when bloggers start resorting to cryptozoological terms to describe your long-awaited third record.

It's the boat Reubens Accomplice has found itself in regarding the fabled, 8-years-in-the making Sons of Men. Kevin Murphy at So Much Silence (one of Phoenix's most senior music blogs) referred to the record the way a late-night caller on Coast to Coast AM might, calling it "our very own sasquatch - often discussed but never seen."

Songwriter Jeff Bufano knows that such ribbing is to be expected.
