I found this bizarre and quite unappealing on first impressions.

Then slowly it clicked; firstly through the more melodic passages, then throughout.

One of the most overlooked masterpieces in folk music.Bizzare, and twisted but entrancing all the same. There’s something so subtly hellish about this album that makes it so addicting.

Chamber folk paired with avant-garde/progressive elements, freaky and unique lyricism and vocals, and obtuse melodic progressions left and right? Hell yes to that. I love this.

makes Tim Buckley and Nico sound like members of the Partridge Family
