Really solid album, it gets tough at times, but the overall sensation is huge. Favs: Grace Cathedral Park, Katy Song, Things Mean a Lot and Brown Eyes. 8.7/10.

What a gorgeous record. I almost didn't like this at first, but became addicted after a few go rounds. I personally cant stand "Funhouse" or "Mother", waste of time, but the rest of the album is beautiful music like no other. "Grace Cathedral Park" is a perfect opener and sets the mood for the whole record. Shortly after you run into "Katy Song", one of the most underrated songs of the 90s and maybe even of all time. "Mistress" is my personal favorite, as I have a draw toward poppy shoegaze songs. Other highlights are "Strawberry Hill", "New Jersey", and "Mistress(Piano)". Once this record grabs you, it doesn't let go for a long while.Its a long journey, but a very rewarding one

probably one of the most depressing albums of all time. the songs and the overall atmosphere are really beautiful and quiet and the lyrics are really touching. the production is great, with the lush chorus guitars and the shy drums, even though the voice is kinda overwhelming in the mix. the album is a little too long (i.e. Mother) and i feel like it could have been perfect if they had cut out some songs and replaced them with better songs from Bridge like Uncle Joe or the electric version of New Jersey.Katy Song is definitely the best song on the album and the lyrics are probably the best lyrics about break up. the whole song just rings beautifully and painfully at the same time in a broken heart. Mistress musically sums up the album perfectly and it's probably the most commercial song. Mark's acoustic talent really shines on Down Through in particular and distorted guitars find a place on the album too, peaking on Strawberry Hill. truly a masterpiece of the 90s.

I don't get this one - it's a little overlong, Mother is 13 minutes of forgettable material, and the 2 versions of Mistress add unnecessary running time as well. There also aren't any tracks that are super memorable - Things Mean A Lot is the only one that really stuck with me after two listens. And the melancholy doesn't feel as focused as in Down Colorful Hill - it feels more aimless. Still a good album, but nowhere close to Down Colorful Hill for me.

It's just too long for my tastes and the instrumentation sounds pretty dull to me... Really makes this album void of any powerful emotions for me. Down Colorful Hill is at least shorter, and the songs seem to stand a lot strong, which is why I enjoy it hella more.

A really good record, for sure. Mark Kozelek may be one of the best lyricists of his generations, and he's been proving it for years now. His voice is sad and honest, and his phrasing and melodic choices on this album often remind me of Morrissey. The songs are not particularly catchy, but somehow they get so engrossing after a couple of listens that it doesn't become a problem at all. But something else does, at least for me, and that's its length. I usually don't mind if an album is long, but there are a couple of tracks here who could've really used some editing out. But that's my only issue with Rollercoaster. Other than that, I think it's a brilliant, very moving and touching album. Mistress and Katy song are the highlights for me.

This album absolutely slays me. Still don't really understand how something so miserable can uplift me like this.

I feel like it's a great album for people who want a reflective album about misery but do not want to feel the same way in their own lives. Once you can accept the sadness in the world, then you can truly be happy. This album allows that to happen.
