Perhaps there is no better record for hushed afternoons on grey days than this masterpiece. This is one of those few records that upon initial listen it instantly becomes one of your all time favorites. So rarely does that happen that when I first heard this years ago, I was instantly obsessed. So dark and beautiful and utterly human. There's a fragility that shines through even at the most psychotic moments. I won't even stoop to try to compare this to anything else.
