 Fine, dark album! When i´m correctly informed, the work is dedicated to a family that was killed in 2005. So, this surely adds to the lamento-like beauty of the songs. The last instrumental piece is gorgeous. It´s a cliche to speak of the "silver lining" and the "light at the end of darkness", and so on, but this piece gives life to all these quite-often used phrases. And it´s interesting (on some of the other pieces) to hear signatures/harmonies of the late Beatles in a David Lynch-like territory of sound! Mark Linkous has done a wonderful job.
