From TorkilSkorgen 04/26/2017 18:01
An album about alienation. It's dark, intense and desperate. The music perfectly makes a haunting, unsettling atmosphere around the vocals, that usually shifts between spoken word and screaming. An album that has a high personal value for me.

This album feels like paranoia and restlessness. Listening to it made my heart beat faster with anxiety. It feels in some ways like one big climax from the beginning to the end. A must listen for anyone who wants to challenge themselves with music and experience emotions that aren't typically felt from music.

1991 was a pretty good year for music. Spiderland, Loveless, and Laughing Stock are all in my top 20. This album does something remarkable. Listening to it carefully from beginning to end like like inhabiting a whole other intellectual space. I am truly 'transported' to some twisted place that the sounds and words convey. Very few records accomplish this so successfully.

From RadioShaq 09/27/2016 17:07
The only album I've heard that rivals Spiderland's encapsulation of young, androgenic isolation and depression is Bernard Herrmann's score for Taxi Driver.

The harbinger Breadcrumb Trail shambles toward euphoria but is eventually eaten by its own doubtful pessimism. Nosferatu Man is paranoia; Don, Aman is solitary dejection, ("he decided to piss, but he couldn't - a plane passed silently overhead"), Washer is fitful melancholy, For Dinner... is foreboding, and Good Morning, Captain is fractured, irresolute terminus.

Listen after dark, with headphones.

Like a previous comment said, try listening to this walking around at night. You'll constantly be looking over your shoulder, and your heart will feel like exploding.

This album is terrifyingly beautiful. When I listen to it I can't picture anything but being in lost in empty black space. It's one of the few albums I've listened to that actually gets better the further one get's into it, with the climax being the "I MISS YOU" part in Good Morning, Captain. It's an all expense paid trip to the void. Highly recommended to play loud, while alone and late at night.

Before i listened to this, i looked up for the lyrics of the album and thought "this is about a dead captain i think, it cant be deep or dark"
39 minutes later ...
"OH GOD WHY THEY CALL THIS ALBUM A MEME, THIS IS THE MOST OBSCURE THING I'VE HEARD IN MY LIFE, POOR CAPTAIN, OH GOD, THE I MISS YOU OUTRO, I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE"
Needs to be in the top 100
