    It is indeed an unrushed, introspective piece of work--not music for a bright sunny Sunday, but perfect for a Sunday during a meditation retreat in a haunted monastery.

    The result is an unpolished gem of spiritual ambiance.

    Making the Saint is a refined yet minor record that works as an intimate aperture into the subtle wonders of Schlarb’s catalog.

    The album is refreshingly spare, especially in light of the lofty production work Schlarb got into previously. However, as nice as these low-key guitar wanderings are initially, the longer pieces drag on into aimlessness and never really reach for any resolution or greater narrative.
