"The goal was to push my brain to places it didn't want to go. The idea was to not have any idea – to keep myself confused about what I was doing," frontman Will Sheff says about Okkervil River's newest album. "I produced it myself so that I could extend the songwriting process all the way through to the very last second of recording, so the songs would never ... Read more in Amazon's Okkervil River Store

Format: Audio CD
Okkervil River walk a postmodern tightrope of ironic, yet sincere, folk music. They've been called alt-country (and half a dozen other silly subgenres, like avant-folk), and that's as good a name as any other, but doesn't really do them justice. Despite the sense of a slightly knowing smirk behind some of the tried-and-tested themes of the album (the general subject matter is heartbreak and abandonment), it's impossible not to be drawn in by Will Robinson Sheff's heartfelt singing. The music is largely flawless, and skips nicely between the livelier songs and the more melancholic ones. Though there is the odd moment where a track can drag a little, such as Bad Days, any problems are redeemed by the wonderful poetry of the lyrics.
So, in short, this album is not anything particularly new. However it is done in a new and deeply intelligent manner. Plus there's a duet with Daniel Johnston, what more could you want?

I want to move to Kansas City. 10 Jan. 2003
By "light_minute" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I just can't get over this CD. I downloaded "Lady Liberty" and "Kansas City" a while before I went out and bought it, and I thought they were pretty wonderful, but the entire album completely floored me. I haven't been able to stop listening to it since I got it. The beautiful, arresting "Westfall" is maybe my favorite track, but every song has its own distinct merits. Okkervil River's songs are wistful, poetic, and intelligent, and will hit you right in the heart.

Know Depression 25 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album loses none of the immediacy or intimacy of their previous CD, "Stars Too Small to Use," but expands on it with greater textural exploration, adding horns, violins, pedal steel, banjo and more to the bare acoustic arrangements of their earlier songs. Even more fleshed out instrumentally as these songs are, they are just as raw as those on OR's previous outing, something they accomplish through fantastic songcraft and bared-soul performances. Combining the rustic tones of Will Oldham (Palace, Bonnie Prince Billy) with the angst of Bright Eyes, this album should appeal to anybody who loves powerful songs performed with abandon. If you like this album, I also highly recommend checking out The Kamikaze Hearts, "Seven More Wonders of the World," if you can find it.

Lovingly-produced, literate, beautiful songs 26 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A music reviewer I am not, but I absolutely feel compelled to recommend this CD. If you like Neutral Milk Hotel, the Microphones, Bright Eyes, Will Oldham, and Tom Waits, to name some popular examples, you'll probably find a dominant position on your CD rack for Don't Fall in Love.... The music is immediately striking, emotional, and full of lyrics and stories that you'll want to think about, re-read in the liner notes, and hear again and again.

Those of us unfortunate enough to be stricken with an inability to see are also those of us fortunate enough to discover the often overlooked power of our auditory senses. Why do we notice sounds at night that go completely overlooked during the day, and get spooked by those normal sounds (walls and tables creaking, pipes rustling) that we couldn't notice less in the sunshine? Have you ever watched a scary movie with the sound off, or noticed your car stereo getting louder as the day grows dimmer? As sight, the most relied upon of all senses, goes, our ears seem to take up the cause to make us aware of our surroundings. More often than not, it is sound and not sight that arouses the most gripping emotional response in our brains.

That said, Okkervil River do a damn good job of conveying emotion, mostly depression and an unforeseen, conflicting, and tortured relationship with vocalist Will Sheff's mother that hints toward some type of unresolved, deeply rooted oedipal conflict. Where Bright Eye's Conor Oberst tends to obnoxiously mope and moan on the mike, Sheff seems to be on the verge of suicide, displaying a cool yet agonizing connection to his tales of adolescent murder and adult heartbreak. Mostly muted and collected, he occasionally breaks into an all-out shout that hints at Oberst-like emotion, yet manages to maintain a restraint that Oberst is incapable of showing.

Playing alt-country like the best Neil Young or Jackson Browne song, the twangy banjos, harmonica, and slide guitar fill in the cracks, acting as bridges between verses or interludes between lyrics, but never taking over. The real star here is Sheff, who stands out most on the classic "Westfall," a disturbingly collected tale about a high schooler, who, along with his best friend, murders a fellow student from a neighboring Christian school. "When I killed her/ it was so easy/ that I wanted to kill her again," he states in a tempered melody, which, when combined with his cool detachment from the narrative, is apt to send shivers into your skull. The crowds and cameras gather round, with all "looking for evil/thinking' they can trace it," however, Sheff reminds the crowd gathering that "evil don't look like anything."

With at least three songs directly referencing "mother," Sheff oddly centers this maternal figure at the center of many songs, displaying emotion from anger at her actions to a blatant want of attention-it is quite apparent that either Sheff can sell his songs like no other, or he's been through some pretty messed up times. This album stands to show that beauty comes from the strangest places.

Format: Audio CD
Just an incredible album. I happened by this cuz I read a good review I think in Rolling stone and the album just floored me. its not often with a song just MOVES you, and this album has many songs that move you. Red, Westfal, Okkervil River are such beautiful, emotional pieces. Puts your faith back in music.
