4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Album - Don't Knock It, 17 Feb 2007
This review is from: Dreamt For Light Years In The Belly Of A Mountain (Audio CD)
This CD seems to have met with a more lukewarm reception than its predecessors which surprises me.

Taken in isolation, this is great Americana/indie music. Linkous is a genuine craftsman of varying musical styles, from acoustic to riffing guitars, but all of his songs share a real warmth and a delightfully skewed lyrical vision. Had this been the debut CD from 'hot' new band I suspect the critics would be falling over themselves to praise it.

If you enjoyed other Sparklehorse CDs I recommend this without hesitation. The only justifiable criticism is that 'Dreamt For Light Years..' does not show any great musical progression; all of the Sparklehorse CDs sound broadly the same, but when he produces songwriting of this quality it seems irrelevant to object. I would be happy with more of the same in 5 years's time!
