I've listened to this album more than any other since its release in 2013. It's a criminally underrated record, though I understand that not all listeners will identify with it as much as I do. It's the only record I've ever heard that attempts to capture--and does so brilliantly--what it was like to grow up in rural New England in the eighties. Thank you, Will Sheff, for telling the story of my childhood, and doing it with such grace, humor, and sensitivity. "Down Down the Deep River" is the obvious highlight here, but it's just one of several outstanding tracks.

Down the Deep River is a brilliant song. Honestly, that song alone is worth giving the album a shot.

From dmack
Okkervil River's version of the Suburbs, and only fails by virtue of it being 2nd. Amazing record nonetheless.
