 Love this album. Don't really agree with the idea that the instrumentals help take away from the record. Felt that they helped to keep the record together actually.

 This is a good album but never quite achieves the creaky grandeur of Cathedral. As a follow to up a remarkable debut album though, it is admirable with some shining moments that point the way to a glistening future.

 I think this is the opposite of Devendra-lite; this album is packed with no filler and has so many more ideas than Cripple Crow, and I like that album. This album is not entirely similar to Cathedral, however, I think it is more refined than almost any offering from the folk community this year, from Devendra, Vashti, Six Organs, down the line (save Animal Collective; Feels pwns).
