Hauntingly beautiful. Heart-breaking words and melodies.
Wonderfully ethereal arrangements full of bitter earth and gorgeous light.
Deceptively humble in presentation, but otherworldly in effect.
It is clear that great attention was paid to these delicate arrangements, not only through the songwriting and structures themselves, but the increased use of overdubs (notably, emulating electric pianos and cellos through what might be those instruments or just guitars engineered/mixed very well!)
