Man, what is it about Carry Me Ohio? Doesn't seem to be much song there but once it starts I want it to never end.

This could be Kozelek's best album, I personally prefer Songs For A Blue Guitar. They're both 10/10, as April is 9.9/10. Everything Kozelek has done until 2010 is hilarious, but I don't know why I do not like the newest records, I guess he has changed his style...

I like this much better than Benji, i don't know why but I just do. This is some of the best folk i've EVER heard.

I am always shocked of how dynamic and dense this album is. It's really difficult not to get burnt out on. 'Ghosts' has the perfect balanced of electrified and acoustic Mark with 'April' close behind.

From Mercury
I'm really loving this. There is something so gently reassuring about the soft, understanding vocals of Mr. Kozelek. I don't know what it is. Also everything musically lulls me away from the now-ness of my existence and just sonically sort takes me off to the side and says "I understand your life and concerns. I've been there. Here's the some beautiful musical."

The strings and harmonies on "Gentle Moon" are absolutely sublime. And just about moment of this album is superb.

It's close between this and "April" but the storyteller approach that Kozelek takes on this record is fascinating. He crafts a beautiful narrative of morality on here.

From tonagamu
It was hard to choose my favorite between this one and "April", but ultimately it fell just a little teensy weensy bit short in quality. However, don't let that comment deter you. This thing is beautiful from start to finish. Really well produced, and Kozelek's voice shimmers brighter than ever here.
