    Love it! Everything about this album is magic and beautiful. I think it could have probably have a better production though. I like the way it sounds naked and very minimal but I think it could have used some great string arrangements but that's only a detail... The songs are lovely. "You Saved My Life" gives me goose bump. A truly masterpiece of pop music.

  1. While some fans of his early work may be left behind, most people who enjoy witty songs with tender emotion behind them will be satisfied with Catacombs and happy with the direction he's headed.
  2. Catacombs isn’t an exception to or refinement of what McCombs has done previously, just a soft demurral of the singer-songwriter career arc.
  3. This is an album of long, mysterious love songs to get lost in for days--seek it out.
