- Despite developing Tinnitus, Gavin has decided to power through it and is now continuing to make more songs.Made in pain. Screw pain, let's do this!

- During Episode 52 of the Jimquisition podcast, to celebrate the anniversary of Jim Sterling going independent, the 90's Australian kids show Round the Twist comes up in discussion. Both Jim and Laura mention the show's catchy theme tune will be stuck in their heads for the rest of the episode...so Gavin busts out his guitar, mid-episode, and plays an impromptu acoustic cover of the theme tune. Jim and Laura - and any audience members who remember that excellent show - are suitably impressed.

- Miracle of Sound itself is a big Moment of Awesome. With the exception of the occasional collab, Gav does all the work himself. That includes singing, playing instruments, writing the songs, and recording. His music is consistently well-received by his fans, which is impressive as it is, but it goes to another level when all that work (which is normally done by multiple people) is put into consideration.
- Open Air is very much an uplifting response to The Day The World Died. How so? Whilst The Day The World Died is a somber song about the fall of man and the uncertainty of its future, Open Air is about the undying hope in the singer when he discovers that the world survives outside of the Moscow Metro. In the comments section one fan even nicknamed the song "The Day The World Was Reborn".
- Comparing the verse about the future in The Day the World Died to Open Air shows just how much hope was inspired by discovering that the world yet lives outside the Metro.The Day The World Died: And the future's a tunnel stretching endlessly / Into nothing, stumble in the black./ And the light at the end is but a treachery/ It will blind you and force you back.
- Even better is a verse sung the exact same way as the closing verse of The Day The World Died shows up near the end of Open Air, and then the song keeps going proving that at long last the nightmare of the Metro is coming to an end and its inhabitants are moving on and that it's people have learned.
- Comparing the verse about the future in The Day the World Died to Open Air shows just how much hope was inspired by discovering that the world yet lives outside the Metro.
- Only Us is a supremely epic tribute to the twisted love story of Jaime and Cercei Lannister. Many commenters who were unsatisfied with how their arc was concluded in the show itself admitted that this song went a long way towards redeeming it.
