Probably the saddest album I've ever listened to. Mark's lyrics give off a feeling of despair, as if he's lost all hope and he's just waiting for someone to give him hope again

A haunting, yet beautiful look into the mind of a man who was completely lost up until his suicide. An album that has grown into one of my favorites; as soon as those flutes come in, your attention narrows until Mark's lyrics and vocals are the only thing in your head. A very quiet and tucked-away album that portrays mental health in a way no other album does. I think Mark was operating in his own little world his whole life, and his music is very strong proof.

So mesmeric, so pastoral, so gentle - Linkous really had something, poetic but still disarmingly simple lyrics with a particular focus on animals that always painted him as a Dr Doolittle of the rock world.

A funny bird no doubt, but he's greatly missed.
