Reminds me of this great 80ís band but not as endlessly as blackholish like if Lou Barlow had been in the Swans.

like the original Giles Corey itís hard to say if itís a gothic warning or a tale of inspiration but whatever it is it runs deep and beautiful

Iíll just say it, itís ****ing heroic to break yourself on the wheel like this


great song writing great atmosphere great sonic imagery

This album was ****ing amazing. I have not one bad thing to say about it, truly. It was gorgeous and ugly at the same time.

10/10. I'm just glad I got to hear it.

I've owned this record a long time. Don't have a lot to say that hasn't been posted already: it definitely has a touch of the 80's goth / Paisley Park fixins', but there's a lot of underlying blues elements and even some post-rock yearning that come to the fore in cuts like 'Blackest Bile' and the sleepy, monasterial 'No One Is Ever Going To Want Me'. "Beautiful yet strange" is an applicable phrase in this case.

Easily a strong 8.5 out of 10 from me.

I'm glad most of you guys enjoyed it. It's a beautifully dark record with just the right amount of dread mixed with indie singer songwriter tropes. It's like Elliott Smith got together with Pygmy Lush and, of course, Have a Nice Life, this being a solo project of Dan Barrett. It's sad as f*ck, sure, but it's also a wonderfully constructed sonic representation of those seriously sad emotions. Hits those depression strings wonderfully. I've always been a sucker for deeply personal albums but unlike Mount Eerie's album about his dead wife, I actually like this music.

I'll provide my RYM score as my rating.

I was listening to a bunch of Goblin right before I listened to this album - it set the tone for that opening track perfectly. Loved this one, will definitely be revisiting. I read that dude attempted suicide right before recording this, eerie.


Jk 8/10
