Mark Linkous lives in a world where the skies are grimy and gray, the streets have no name, and everyone has a nasty love hangover .... Sound ugly as sin? It’s actually heartbreakingly beautiful; Linkous’ songs are so fragile and tender, you’ll want to coddle them.

Mark Linkous’ second album as Sparklehorse shines an old light on impossible things. He found the purity of pop music and then lacerated it with the quirks and imperfections he cherished.

A less diverse, more youthful Mark Linkous than we see on projects after this. An essential listen for any fans of his work, I think it is leagues better than Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot honestly.
