Always preferred his first album. But playing this for the first time in a while I may have to re evaluate. Things behind the sun is hairs stand up incredible.

Nick delivers timeless soul-crushing tunes of sadness all by himself right before going off the deep end. 10/10

Almost a perfect album, this is solo acoustic music at its finest.

It didn't particularly connect with me until I read about his life and listened again closely. Pretty complex and interesting guitar playing, beautiful voice, short and all the better for it. And production is stunning, you can't tell if there is any overdubs, different layers, is there more than one guitar at certain moments? I'm still not entirely sure, but it does feel like he's playing from the comfort of his room straight to you. A swan song of one of the forgotten legends.

Coming back to this one, it's growing on me a little bit. Unmistakably beautiful.

This album is a magnificent accomplishment, especially in light of the tragic nature of Nick's life. Under 30 minutes of beautiful guitar and vocals. Stripped down and completely gripping.

Beautifully melancholic, and impressive lyrics about apocalypse, losing innocence, corruption and hypocrisy, but surprisingly and magnificently ending with the hope of a new dawn in 'From the Morning'.

Upon seeing that this album was under thirty minutes long, I came in thinking it wasn't going to be that great. Which only made it more surprising when I came out on just the first listen when I realized this album was fantastic. Honestly, what makes it so wonderful are the complex yet memorable acoustic guitar compositions for each track. And everything works perfectly together, the lyrics, guitar, and his vocals (not to mention Pink Moon [Title track] that contained a piano too). Also this was all performed and written by one man. Such a tragic loss of such wonderful musician, who left us with such an incredible album.

I'm definitely excited to check out Nick Drake's other studio albums. This was very impressive.
