Songs here are more formed than Laughing Stock, it's an easier, more pleasant listen. I find Laughing Stock to be the darker, more troubled of the two while Spirit of Eden is the beautiful, graceful side of the same coin.

This is a very interesting and unique sound. It is very ethereal and slow. It seemed to me to be a bit too sparse, but I probably don't have the patience :) I think when I come back to it with hopefully some more jazz knowledge I'll like it more

As this is the album that required the guts to step away from commercial succes I consider this one to be the better one of the pair Spirit of Eden/Laughing Stock. What a beautiful music!

The difficult thing for me about this album is describing the genre(s) on this album (and Laughing Stock). You can draw lines to Art Rock, Post-Rock, Ambient, or even Jazz but that still isn't enough to justify the sound of the record.

I played this album while driving in public transport. It was nice and sunny day. At some point tears started gathering around my eyes. I turned to the window and stealthily wipe them off while thinking what an amazing album I was listening.

What can I say that hasn't been said yet. This is truly a work of art that comes from a place of absolute inspiration. The arrangements are perfect.
It's part of that podium where Dark Side of the Moon and A Love Supreme are, without any question.
