The Finally LP - Mark Kozelek

Generally favorable reviews - based on 7 Critics

Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. The bottom line here, of course, is if you are a fan, you'll need this and won't debate its merit one way or another. If you're new to Kozelek, you'll no doubt be wowed by some of this and bored by the rest.
  2. This compilation of songs from films and tributes becomes nothing less than an inadvertent tribute to Kozelek himself, a finely woven tapestry of pop music as refracted through his heartfelt filter of pastoral, troubled beauty.
  3. Light as it may feel, Finally provides a concrete diagram for what Kozelek has been doing for years: taking big songs and packing them into very small boxes.
  4. 60
    This odds-and-ends comp is unusually straightforward.
  5. There are some great Kozelek covers and comp contributions floating out there that are missing from this half-hour disc, which still manages to finagle a whole lot of beauty out of the brevity.
  6. The only cohesion is in the artist, which is reason enough for some, but for most, this is a "collector’s only" item. [Year End 2008]
