Oh my word....on first listen it may not seem all that. Especially compared to Pink Moon. But I promise a second listen is a must! This album isn't just on par with Pink Moon....it may even be better! With help from members from Beach Boys, Velvet Underground and Fairport Convention one of the prettiest albums was born.

Nick Drake could do no wrong. Yet again, he perfectly blends many genres to create a beautiful mix of sounds. This artist needs even more attention, because I believe that he paved the way to modern music through his raw feelings and experimented instrumentation.

While Nick Drake is always on point, Bryter Layter is my favorite of his albums for its diversity in sound and its strangely upbeat somberness. 'Hazy Jane II' is one of my favorite songs of all time. The lyrics tumble on top of each other and are quite repetitive. He sounds overwhelmed, which is an exciting sentiment to capture through music. His music always delivers an emotional kick in the heart, but Bryter Layter is particularly gorgeous and indulgent.
