√     Přiznávám, že na albu je několik písní, které se mi úplně nepohybují stejně jako ostatní, v oblasti delikatessy. A to může být občas hudebně i lyricky trochu příliš předvídatelné. Ale je tu dostatek dobrých skladeb, aby to jako celek bylo možné zachránit a ukázat, že Sam má stále vysokou cenu jako skvělý a upřímný skladatel. Má opravdový talent pro psaní písní s pocitem intimity, že pak máte pocit, jako by zpíval přímo k vám. Jeho vokální rekomando je vřelé a je skutečně uklidňující. Čím víc poslouchám toto album, tím více respektuji skutečnost, že Sam se nevrátil ke svému srdečnému dospívajícímu já. Tedy, snad i zahodil pár věcí za svá záda. Jedná se o nejaktuálnější snímek příběhu Get Cape. Už není přesycen v barážích špiček strachu a obav.  Když mladiství, z jakéhokoli množství důvodů v kombinaci s jejich hormony a stresu ze školy, dostanou deprese, to se už Sama netýká. A pomocí žánrových mixů, transformací se mu podařilo zdokonalit přístup k tomu, že má něco, co má srdce, ale současně se nebere příliš vážně. Od jedné mladistvé podoby ke druhé, která má teď svůj vlastní ksicht, přináší a zakládá asociace, spojení, zároveň trvalý vztah a příjemný návrat do špičkové formy.

√     Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. has never been an alternate persona for Sam Duckworth but rather an open~hearted expression of how he really feels. From the release of his debut album The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager in 2006 to the surprise release of ‘Optimist’ under the moniker, Get Cape’s nuanced approach to politics, and consumption of underground dance music and other diverse styles has reflected modern living as a young person in Britain. Switching names (playing under his own name or Recreations) has not diminished the impact and passion that revels within the samples, beats, guitars and choruses that deliver the rush of progress and compassion, the anger at authority and the struggle to combat injustice. Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. is tied around these post-millenial decades and offer us salvation and space to dance and be ourselves. Just as it does for Sam.
About Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
√     Singer/guitarist Sam Duckworth is the primary member behind indie~emo folk affair Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, a moniker culled from a headline in a computer magazine about a Batman game. Raised equally on electronic, political folksingers, and post~hardcore, he began GC.WC.F in Essex, U.K., in 2004 after fronting a hardcore punk band. At performances, Duckworth is often accompanied by an acoustic guitar and laptop, while his touring highlights include dates with José González and OK Go. He eventually moved from indie label Big Scary Monsters to major Atlantic, which released the debut full~length Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager in September 2006 (then out in the U.S. April of the following year). ~ Kenyon Hopkin
Review from Ben Forrester
√     On first listen to the debut Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly album, there was no way you could not be engulfed by the passion and sincerity coming from its creator Sam Duckworth. Lyrically, it was a perfect balance of personal and political, whilst musically it blended electronica, emo, folk and indie for some seriously stunning results. Sam went on to make three more records as Get Cape before deciding to retire the project in 2014 to concentrate on other musical ventures.
√     So, here we are four years on and Sam has decided to don his cape again and bring back his much adored moniker for a fifth Get Cape LP. In a world full of uncertainty with an increasing sense of doom, it seems that a new Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly album is needed to help comfort and empower us once again.
√     From the off, it’s clear that this isn’t going to be the heart wrenching electro~emo expected and instead what we get is a charming set of indie pop songs. Opening track ‘Adults‘ is a perfect pop tune that gently builds into a glorious ending of bright trumpets and a warm chorus of voices. Tracks like ‘Just A Phase‘ and ‘Animate‘ are similar in bringing sparkling pop sensibilities right up in your grill, almost forcing you to sing along. Musically, it’s a very playful album but lyrically Sam is still as thoughtful and intuitive as ever.
√     ‘Always‘ acts as the emotional centrepiece here, with the chorus refrain of “Don’t be scared now you’ve got this, I’ll be by your side, always“. Dealing with themes of anxiety and the responsibility of age make this such a relatable moment. I’d go as far to say that those feelings act as a key theme throughout ‘Young Adults‘, which explains its title.
√     There are subtle electronica references throughout the album but for the most part this is a full band affair, with upbeat drums and pleasant acoustic guitar strums taking up most of its sonic pallet. It seems that Sam wants to let the melodies really shine through on this record and not get too overcrowded, but there are still little flourishes here and there that help bulk up these unapologetically catchy tracks.
√     I will admit, there’s a few songs in the track~listing that don’t quite move me as much as others, and it can be a bit too predictable both musically and lyrically at times. But there are enough good tracks to save it and prove Sam’s worth as a great, honest songwriter. He has a real knack for writing songs with a sense of intimacy that make you feel like he’s singing directly to you. There is a warmth to his vocal delivery that is genuinely comforting.
√     The more I listen to this album, the more I respect the fact that Sam didn’t revert to his heartfelt teenage self. This is an up to date snap shot of the Get Cape story. He’s no longer crowded in a barrage of  teen angst and genre mash ups and has managed to refine his approach into making something that has heart but at the same time doesn’t take itself too seriously. From one young adult to another, this is a relatable and enjoyable return to form.
