    What a beautiful tune, I love the harmonies and after watching the video with Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings by sheer luck one night on rave, I just would not be able to forget the atmosphere and overall feel. One of these rare songs that capture a certain moment.

    One of my top ten favourite albums of all time. Simply amazing.

    Breathtaking. Not sure there's another word that appropriately captures the beauty here. Welch and Rawlings sprinkle sparsely compelling instrumentation around simple yet lush melodies that communicate a depth of pain and feeling in specific (yet abstract) time and space that few artists ever approach and far fewer still ever reach.

  1. A winsome, beautiful collection of songs... Welch has never seemed more assured, building a creatively expansive work out of modest ingredients.
  2. Ironically, while this is Welch's quietest album, with nary a drum or electric instrument in earshot, it's even closer to the spiritual vicinity of rock.

    This is a profoundly good record. [Nov 2001, p.102]
