I don't know if this is some new art form in music, or some old form rediscovered, or both, but I like it very much. There's not much I can write that hasn't been written already by others here. The arrangements are superb, and the lyrics touch something in me, as well as Tibet's vocal delivery. The surreal undercurrents, provided, I suspect, in large part by Nurse With Wound's Steven Stapleton, are perfectly integrated into the mix. This record and All the Pretty Horses (the Inmost Light release that also contains the two EPs, Where the Long Shadows Fall and The Stars Are Marching Sadly Home) are, for me, Tibet's strongest work, which isn't to say I don't like the many others that came before and after. This is a mature, perfectly realized recording of a single work divided into "songs" that flow from one into another. Thunder Perfect Mind gets more praise, typically, but this is a better record in my opinion. I see TPM as a stepping stone to something more perfectly realized here, and on Pretty Horses.
