Seemed to me like a mediocre lyricist pretending to be profound. It never really clicked at any point for me. It was more of a storytelling than a musical experience. But the stories just weren't very gripping. I think "A crow looked at me" is what this album is trying to be.

A bit monotonous and rambling, but good overall.

I didn't know this guy was from my hometown until I heard this record. Makes the sadcore believable, knowing he's from NE Ohio.

Great stuff.

I am surprised with Mark Kozelek's change. I loved his music in his Red House Painters stage, and I also liked the first part of Sun Kil Moon music. But since Among The Leaves, I think he is gone and he'll never come back...

I agree with Krypto and Pantsoff. An amazing storyteller, but I struggle to listen to this as a piece of music. I guess it's too 'stream of conciousness' for me. As an aside, Jim Wise is heart-wrenching and beautiful, but Dogs is awful.

I honestly don't think I've ever felt this downright uncomfortable listening to a piece of music before. I love Mark Kozelek, but this just felt like one of those times when someone you've never met before just starts sharing all of this personal information with you that you didn't ask for. Benji is beautifully written, but it will hurt you if you're not ready for it.

I love this album so much. The soft instrumentation mixes well with the compelling and heartfelt lyrics.

Still not sure about this album. It's definetly not my kind of music. For me its more storytelling. Thats interesting, but I don't think that I will listen it very often
