UncutFeb 29, 2016Not even this collaboration's most thunderous moments detract from the quieter power of the singer's frank, free-associative lyrics. [Apr 2016, p.74]
Feb 11, 2016Jesu’s crunching, industrial guitar, subtle drum machines and harmonies compliment Kozelek’s meandering, caustic tales differently to past collaborators such as The Album Leaf and Desertshore, but it works just as well, helped by star turns from the likes of Low and Will Oldham.
Feb 11, 2016While Kozelek remains an incredible storyteller, and the album is fascinating as ever to his faithful followers, it's likely to be exhausting, infuriating, or simply head-scratching to anyone who isn't already a fan of his. And as wonderful as Broadrick's musical contributions are, they recede into the background and aren't nearly as distinctive as his own work.
Feb 11, 2016Kozelek sounds like a man making great strides in self-acceptance. This rosier outlook, coupled with Jesu’s fuzzy, grunge-era melodies, lightens (thankfully) the demands put on the listener. An annotated glossary outlining locations, people, and callbacks would still be helpful, though not necessarily essential.
Feb 11, 2016While taking Kozelek out of his musical comfort zone at times pays off with interesting results on Jesu/Sun Kil Moon, other parts of the album makes one wonder if Kozelek wasn't better off continuing to pick away at his nylon string guitar and ramble away like usual.

Feb 29, 2016Some of the tracks speak so close to me, specially "America's Most Wanted Mark Kozelek and John Dillinger" since I've been to the Sun KilSome of the tracks speak so close to me, specially "America's Most Wanted Mark Kozelek and John Dillinger" since I've been to the Sun Kil Moon's concert in Umbertide that Kozelek mentions in it, where he gets the gum from the boy (Who he thought was a girl!) and let's the guys dance on stage. He also tried to pick my iPad when I was filming him. It's really something to see an artists' perspective from a show I've been to, specially seeing that the show was as important for him that it was for me.
Since the heavy distorted guitars will not please most of Kozelek's fans, the first tracks should be hard to endure for some. But the album will eventually reward even those listerners when the two artists gets to the last, lighter, tracks of the album, like "Exodus", "Fragile" and "Beautiful You".… Expand
