Incidentally, doesn't this kind of put the lie to all that 'in this day and age nobody can possibly delay the gap between announcing and releasing more than a day or two' business? This album was announced like half a year ago.

"Jesus Alone" is harrowing and surreal. I'm excited to hear the album though I wonder how emotionally taxing it might be.

This album makes A Moon Shaped Pool sound like The Monkees.

It's on Apple Music now. It's pretty good.

I think it's about time to recognize this man as one of the best living songwriters, if we haven't already done so. How many albums does he have now, 16? About a dozen of those are great and his new ones continue to be great as he approaches 60. The consistency there is amazing.

I'm really itching to hear the new one. For some reason my iTunes refuses to download the final track though.

It's good. Not sure I it's anywhere near one of my favorites of his though. I think, perhaps inescapably, people's reactions to the album are getting swept up in the story of its creation. Not that that's a bad thing but eh.

The only word I can think of for this album is harrowing. I can't think of a song harder to listen to than "I Need You." Just devastating.

I don't even know what to say about it after one listen except that it is mesmerizing, visceral, and ultimately beautiful in an incredibly powerful way.

He uses the steam-of-consciousness lyrical and vocal delivery to tremendous effect, even more so than on Push the Sky Away. Some of the instrumentation, like on Rings of Saturn I think, gives the feeling of a mind spinning, trying to cope with trauma, but there's something calming in the synths and languid melodies as well.

An incredibly brave album as well in acknowledging defeat in the search for meaning out of pain, much like Carrie & Lowell in that regard.

"Soon the children will be rising, will be rising. This is not for our eyes."

God damn.
