Why the fuck did punknews.org review this?

Unsurprisingly, one of C&L's only slightly mixed reviews.

Finally got the chance to listen to this. AFTER ONE LISTEN (I always feel bad reviewing stuff here after one listen, my old pal Imps always hated that) I liked it but was not as enamoured as most of you and indeed the world seems to be. It's certainly quite good, but a bit more variety would have been nice, I think. Highlights were Death With Dignity, Should Have Known Better, Fourth of July and Blue Bucket of Gold. I noticed quite a few of the tracks have extended instrumental outros. I think the best songs layer the instruments; there's some truly beautiful flourishes on a few of these songs that take them up a level. Lyrically holy fuck it's dark, like every song, but in particular The Only Thing and No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross. I look forward to getting to know it a lot better. Sufjan has been a (very) recent discovery for me but I've been rather obsessed for a couple of months; would likely be atop my Last.fm charts if I ever checked them or updated them properly.

What's everyone else thinking? Let's have some more discussion. Everyone seems to love it and yet we've got like barely two pages of thoughts on it. Cmon

I'm thinking you shouldn't be reviewing it after one listen.

I've spent 10 years here doing exactly that. Not going to stop now. And I'd much rather put up a post and try and foster some discussion than follow the status quo around here of late of "this is really good" "yeah" *nothing for five months*

I know you're being facetious but I really wish people would vomit crap like I do sometimes.

 
The album will definitely grow on me and likely become a fav of the year.

This is my favorite part of the album; it ties things together in an inventive way, much like that recurring poem in the new Kendrick album. I have a hard time articulating this, but the ambient sections feel almost like sleep after a day of mourning, as though the album is a series of days and nights in the aftermath of a parent's death.

You should probably see a doctor about that.

I've listened to this album many many times now and I'm thinking it may be my favourite of his. While I like a lot of his previous work there are always a couple of songs that don't seem to work for me on each of his albums, nothing on this one so far.

We must have bad communication, I was joking because of your initial blurb about feeling bad about reviews after one listen. You should have known better.

It iz an album that had to hear 2 or 3 times before it metaphorically exploded like fireworks on the Fourth of July for me tho. Deal wit dat, Age of Cobbz.

They all work really well, and I think add something to an album that doesn't stray much from its sound. Hushed, is the word I'd use to describe Carrie & Lowell. I had another listen this morning and found myself less than impressed. I hope the epiphany will come, as it sounds quite lovely.

It is very much a mood piece. My favorite Sufjan album is Seven Swans, which also fits that description, so I guess it's no surprise I enjoy C&L as well.
