Depressing album, one of the best concept albums, although it is not an album that I strive to listen to.

Favorite Track: Bear

I have only listened twice to this, but when the Prologue gives me the cheers and almost makes me cry I tend to think this will easily be one of my favorite albums ever.

beautiful album, with honest, harrowingly emotional lyrics. Personally it's hard to listen to this album because of the pure emotional weight.

Drowned out vocals and a very contrived feeling of sadness leaves this album very hallow.

Incredible, emotional lyrics and most emotionally aware album I've ever heard. The sheer sorrow thats evident in his voice put me in a complete emotional swirling trance. Its a pretty intense album to go through but my god, it was was an incredible experience. I feel like this album definitely starts a lot stronger then it finishes which kind of prevents it being absolutely 100/100 but it comes pretty fucking close.

It's pretty good. His voice is really soothing, but some of the songs lose my interest.
Best tracks: Epilogue, Bear, Sylvia
Worst tracks: Atrophy, Thirteen

This album has some of the highest quality, and most depressing lyrics I know of anywhere. It's a very dark and heavy story when you get into what he's actually saying (which is pretty hard to hear at times), and the production adds to the emotional impact perfectly.

If only the second half could be as good as the first.
