A good album with some great songs but I feel as though it may be a bit overrated because of his tragic death. Nick was certainly a master guitarist and his vocal delivery on this album is very nice. Place To Be and From The Morning are the best songs in my opinion.

This album feels like I'm drowning in sorrow, and I love it. It may seem short being a little under 30 minutes, but for what this album goes for, it's just the perfect length. For literally only having guitar and vocals on everything except the title track, which has piano as well as guitar and vocals, it's down right heart wrenching and captivating. It's not as heart wrenching as something like 'Carrie and Lowell' by Sufjan Stevens, but it's dang close. I hope someday Nick Drake gets more recognition, and it's genuinely sad that he passed away at the age of 26. This album feels very personal, beutiful, raw and heavy on emotion, but it hits ya hard on dem heart strings.

Nick Drake's most praised album consists of abstract and obscure songs, in this period of time, Nick was intensally dissappointed with his failing attempt at the charts, and in this moment was just making music for himself. I personally prefer his two previous albums, but this is a testament of one's mind, in his final years.

One of the most important albums of my life. Lost my virginity to the opening 4 songs. I remember laying down with my boyfriend in the middle of the night and hearing Things Behind the Sun playing softly in the background and feeling this immense, timeless, cosmic sense of both togetherness and loneliness. Most intimate I've felt in my life. Thank you Nick.

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

From LedZep
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.
