One of the most beautiful and well produced albums I've ever heard. Everything sounds like it's floating. The vocals take a bit to get used to but are really amazing once you do. I don't think of it as particularly sad, because sad albums make you cry, and only "A Crow Looked At Me" has done that. But is definitely hauntingly beautiful. The Antlers are great at creating atmosphere on this album

Couldn't finish listening to this..
Way too much spit & mucus sounds from the singer, even more pathos than Arcade Fire, more boring than the National in the less pathetic (softer) parts.
Maybe the lyrics are genius, but I don't care much for (the meaning of) lyrics.
Clearly not my kind of music.. :)

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

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.
