According to RYM it actually is their tenth album, but according to just about everywhere else it's their second. However, RYM is including demos and albums they released under different names in that list. Nevertheless, Brad1770's review is goddamn hilarious.

@Brad1770 "The greatest 10th album in the history of music" lol bruh there's this unknown album called The White Album by an underground band called The Beatles you should check it out.

Plus, how can you make a statement like that then you go and give "The greatest 10th album in the history of music" a 5/10? and not to burst your bubble but this wasn't even their 10th album lmao this is hilarious

A testament to how music can be emotional and otherworldly without being technically proficient

This is one of the greatest albums of all time. It takes a decent number of listens, but the true beauty of this album soon reveals itself. While it may seem haphazard, every note of this album is heavily choreographed. It's perfectly imperfect. Other music seems boring in its presence.

This album is a lo-fi, folk-y, noisy, beautiful masterpiece that features the brilliant and eerie lyrics of Phil Elverum and the intricate instrumentation that accompanies them. It's the type of album that takes a few listens to fully comprehend and appreciate. It alternates between beautiful acoustic melodies and aggressive noise rock to express the contrasting emotions the narrator is experiencing. The title track is one of my favorites because the lyrics portray the narrator wishing he were dead, or even attempting suicide, but then realizing that he is still alive and has no choice but to go on living. The way Elverum describes the feeling of being alive (my heart beats loudly/my blood flows harshly) portrays his existence as one full of pain and anger. The dark and profound lyrics are one of my favorite aspects of the record. The lyrics are sung with such emotion, expressing vulnerability and devastation, which facilitates the listener's comprehension of what the narrator is going through. In addition, the eerie-sounding, buzzing note that is repeated many times throughout the album gives it a dark, foreboding tone. I like the way it becomes more prominent as the album progresses until the final track, which consists almost entirely of this single sound being repeated over and over. It makes me think of impending danger when I hear it, which makes it very attention-catching and jarring. It's an intriguing, unique record that explores a variety of ideas and emotions in an effective way. The only downfall, in my opinion, is that certain tracks, such as Samurai Sword, are so noisy and aggressive that they are slightly difficult to listen to, although I recognize that the band included such instrumentation to contribute to the album's tumultuous and emotionally jarring tone.

Favorite tracks: I Want Wind to Blow, Headless Horseman, The Gleam Pt. 2, You'll Be In the Air

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.
