As a long term RHP/SKM I am slightly biased but Among the leaves is an excellent album. Yes it is light hearted, yes some of the lyrics are cheesy, yes some of his singing is lazy BUT it is the trademark Kozelek that we all know and love and I wouldn't change it for the world. Gems such as Sunshine in Chigaco, Young love, among the leaves are my soundtracks for the summer. Listen, laugh and enjoy.

Before I start enthusing about this album let me give you a short history of my relationship with the music of Mark Kozelek. Armed with this you will know whether your tastes are aligned with my own and thus whether or not you value my take on this collection of songs.

Red House Painters are my all time favourite band. `Rollercoaster' is my all time favourite album and probably always will be.

The work he's released under his own name I have enjoyed without loving.

I have found his Sun Kil Moon output patchy. I loved his Modest Mouse covers album Tiny Cities, but didn't go mental for `Ghosts of the Great Highway' and `April' like everyone else seemed to. There were some good songs on there but far too much self indulgence and mumbled lyrics that failed to really engage.

Then there was Admiral Fell Promises. I hated this album. It just sounded to me like an excuse for him to show off how good a guitarist he had become. Like listening to a very dense, dark and dry `Learn how to play acoustic guitar' self-help CD.

And so, finally, I get to the review of this work of art. What an amazing return to form, without repeating what's gone before in any way. This is a beautiful, witty, moving, reflective and absolutely brilliant album. There's tonnes of light, plenty of shade and everything in between. At 17 songs, it's an album of great length, but in my opinion, all the recent self-indulgence has been discarded. Every song has its merits and interest and I love every one. I can't believe that other fans think some of it sounds unfinished, but musical opinions are, in my opinion, the most personal opinion you can hold.

For me this is great winter travelling music, nothing better then driving through the misty welsh landscape with this album on. While this album is much more about his own thoughts and feelings to travelling , which can be quite glum, for me it fills in more detail about the man himself.

Koz's release prior to this, Admiral Fell Promises, is possibly the most beautiful album I've ever heard; I was in love with it from the very first few notes of 'Alesund'. ATL took a few listens to sink in. I wasn't convinced by some of the arrangements - some tracks felt like ideas that hadn't been fully worked through, almost as if Koz felt it wasn't worth the effort. The tongue-in-cheek nature of some of the lyrics also took me by surprise. Koz has always been somewhat of an enigma, and poking fun at his fans and places he visits wasn't expected - although we must remember it is all in jest. It's like he found himself slightly frustrated and thought it easier to pick a fight with the world instead of exploring its true beauty. But this is a beautiful album in its own little way, and I prefer that he's included all these songs rather than pick the 10 best. Just listen to 'Young Love' then 'Song For Richard Callopy' if you think there's no life left in Koz's writing. Arguably they're two of the most honest and beautifully crafted songs of his career. There are tracks here that may be lost in the expansive back-catalogue of Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon, but there's more than enough moments of brilliance to go around with this album.
