Tiny Mix Tapes

The album is wonderfully uneven and mysteriously unfinished, and while we might look forward to its second half for a sense of balance and completion, I’m content enough to dwell amidst its own jagged remains.

86
Beats Per Minute

This record, as much of Elverum’s work is, is a grower in the most beautiful sense, and one that I can’t imagine will lose its brilliance any time soon.

Pitchfork

It feels like a collection of secrets Elverum has cupped in his palm to pour directly, and privately, into your ear alone, a rich meditation on the many meanings of the word "home."

Consequence of Sound

The stars align, in the form humming organs, and a clear moon is all we see. Elverum’s glow has never shined so bright.

The 405

Clear Moon is yet another immensely accomplished record by any immensely accomplished musician.

No Ripcord

Elverum’s utilization of metallic and avant-garde elements into what might otherwise be considered a folk album demonstrates a songwriter unlimited by genre and also turned on by creative possibility.

A.V. Club

Clear Moon is a thunderous effort, but it’s hard to ignore the other Phil Elverum hiding behind the clouds, composing his next tweet.

Another overall great release from Phil. Lots of dark moments that showcase a lot of emotion. Still having some black metal influence but not as much as before. It's a moving record.

Favourite tracks: Through The Trees Pt. 2, The Place Lives, Over Dark Water, Clear Moon, Yawning Sky
