What does everyone think?
Im pretty tired, but it sounds bloody perfect right now.
but the description put me off.
sell it to me.
Hmmm. I'm terrible at describing this type of music, especially when I'm tired. I also find it very hard to dislike anything sotl do.
I just want to slip into a coma with this record right now, though.
The third track is just incredible.
"Over the course of five albums and the better part of a decade, Austin duo Stars of the Lid (one of the most apropos names in all of music) have scratched out quite a niche for themselves in the amorphous world of ambient rock music. From their almost-rock beginnings to the almost-classical fugues of recent albums, Stars of the Lid have excelled at designing subtle, minimalist epics which sound like they're being played on a single multifaceted, many-splendored, organic instrument. They offer subtle, endlessly evolving stories about the dynamics of sonic texture, at the same time seeming to offer a picture of pure, unfettered consciousness. You hear snippets of sound from daily life as you go, but these are inevitably swept up in the duo's arias of treated strings, honeyed organs, and euphonic effects-driven guitars, reminding you how far from the ordinary and the mundane you are, how deep into lightless deep space you've gone."

I love it.
for god's sake.
I get the flu and miss out on so much leaking... Smog, Willy Mason, and this.

i don't want to download some of what i think 'ambient rock music' sounds like.
I merely think it is nice and I don't mean nice like Keane.
