I was lucky enough to find this album through the Album of the Day and I'm glad I listened. It's really excellent and atmospheric. I would definitely recommend. Only negative I can come up with is some songs were a bit too long, but that in itself is not an issue at all to me.

I may prefer It Was Hot, We Stayed In Water but in terms of quality I perceive them equally. I know the label of "haunting" as a descriptor gets thrown around a lot in music but this album truly deserves it. No album has successfully scared the living shit out of me like this.

While "The Glow Pt. 2" may be too abrasive at certain points for some people, to me it's part of what makes this album so unique and bold. There's a darkness to this album that's hard to describe, but the mood it creates really got to me from the very first listen.

By far, my favorite album. No matter what I'm doing, if I start listening to this album, I can't help but listen all the way through.

If you're into Lo-Fi will have heard this before. However, one could hardly call it mainstream. There are instances in this album, particularly the last song, where you may find yourself thinking 'What the hell am I listening to?' and 'Did I really just pay for the privilege of hearing that?' But, I feel that these moments are made up for by the instrumentals I and II, (Something) I and II and my personal favourite 'I Felt Your Shape'.

Pretty good dark indie rock album. Based on his actual 389th overall rank, The Glow Pt. 2 his maybe a bit overrated on BEA.

Favorite track: I Want Wind To Blow, Moon, Samurai Sword
Less favorite tracks: My Roots Are Strong And Deep, Mansion

Pretty cool. Reminds me of GBV just a very little bit but then again doesn't really remind me of anything. Bold and stubbornly different like that, too, though.
