All I can say is… damn. This album is honestly the first Sun Kil Moon album I have ever heard. However, from track one Carissa, I just fell in love. Such a crazy detailed album. The lyrics to each song put you in the moment that Mark Kozelek had in his mind. I haven’t done the research on whether or not the stories in the songs are real, but the way he describes it is wildly imaginative and therefore makes you think they are true.
There are some depressing songs, some comedic songs, and some bluesy songs that you can bob your head to.
Absolutely loving this album since the first week it was out. I would advise you to give it a try.
