A very warm and lonely album. It's very simple: 28 minutes of a voice and an acoustic guitar. Yet he can make so much magic out of so little. Nick Drake is the voice of loneliness, and of feeling like the parasite in town. And whenever you're feeling the same, he's like a good friend.

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.

A nice collection of tracks from Nick Drake. Very simple setup with just his vocals and his guitar. Quite a short record as the whole albums is about half an hour. Relaxing to listen to even with the melancholic tone around it.

A bit of a hidden gem, this album. Upon hearing it for the first time I had to keep going back to it. It strikes me as a timeless classic. It doesn't sound in any way dated. It touches you on a deep emotional level which is what a good stripped back acoustic guitar with vocal should do. There is nothing outrageously brilliant about the guitar, vocal, lyrics, or melodies on their own, however they all meld together immaculately.

Wow, what an amazing album. This is rated 60th, but it's still too low on here. Nearly every song on here tells a gripping tale of depression and loss, except Horn which makes up for it by being a pretty great instrumental. As a lyricist, Nick Drake is unmatched by anyone. Nick's timid voice might not be impressive right away, but it works so well with the lyrics. He's also a very underrated guitar player, especially on Know. Every track on here is great, but my favorites are Place To Be, Which Will, Know, and Harvest Breed.

Reminds me a bit of Alexi Murdoch, who I relate to a bit better, but still very nice.

This album has a very melancholic tone but it doesn't keep it from being such an amazing piece of music. It is definitely underrated and I wish Nick Drake was much more of a household name.
