In which Ben Chasny strips away the dense layers and Current 93-esque studio tomfoolery of his last LP proper (Luminous Night) in favour of a more back-to-basics home solo home recording style, more in the vein of his stellar early shit. This one does differ from the likes of Dark Noontide though in that there aren't really any interludes of droney atmospherics in amongst the sublime acoustic guitar folkery.. Much of it is very minimal indeed. That's not to say that there aren't other elements on show, it's just that they're stitched into the fabric of his picking and strumming rather than having much of a sense of separation as was often the case in the past. Vocals are sparing but expertly used. The whole thing has a gorgeously light and airy feel which I don't think he's ever really used across the length of a full album before.. It makes for a very nice departure.
