    The best of the year: beautiful mysterious lyrics, sincere quivering vocals, passionate meandering music. I have worn grooves into my disc with repeated listenings, many times pressing replay immediately following the last note of the last song.

    Incredible. The sincerity of the album surpasses so much of the ironicly snide indie rock of today.

    This is a record dedicated to one type of people, I'm not that type. Its too slow, almost making me fall asleep. Nice to listen to, but no more than once.

  1. The subtle mix of acoustic instruments with warm electric washes gives Holopaw's songs a surprising amount of depth.
  2. Much of this record is quietly beautiful, and its laments gather weight with repeated listens.
  3. For a debut album, this is extremely strong.
