This album is relegated to be a forgotten gem. I'll admit to the fact that it holds a special place for me by virtue of the particular time in my life when I was introduced to it, but even abstracting from the situational bias (which is always present), this is a terrific album. It has nothing to do with post-rock or Godspeed, which is how most (including me) came to find it. Instead, it is six wonderful songs, played with an incredible restraint, both in terms of instrumentation and tempo. It will forever be one of my favourite records. I would end up singing these songs to my son when he was a baby.
