    Absolutely beautiful and haunting. Though some may like to call this "black metal", this album, to me is more like a avant-garde noise rock album. With haunting vocals and just explosions of noise and haunting and distant and vocals that make it inexplicably beautiful to stare into the night while listening to this album on headphones.

  1. Wind's Poem strikes a balance between accessibility and ambition that offers something for every kind of Elverum fan, but never sacrifices its purpose in the process.
  2. Phil has moved well beyond the often formless experiments of the early Microphones releases--this is still by no means a record to be digested lightly. And thank goodness for that.
  3. The rest of Wind’s Poem plays out slow, shimmering, and really just classic Phil Elvrum, even if the album’s tone is darker, well produced and generally well executed. But once an experimentalist folk musician, always an experimentalist folk musician, and kudos to Elvrum for experimenting even further outside of the realm.
