No More Shall We Part
No More Shall We Part
"The album that hardcore NC-fans love to hate is a sad and beautiful masterpiece. If it was only for the piano in "We came along this road" and "Sorrowful wife", it would be enough."

"Illustrates how far melancholy can be pushed before becoming cheesy. Wonderfully heartbreaking."
The Queen Is Dead

"Morrissey started the "melancholy is cool" trend in British rock music."

"Everything about Elliott Smith is more downright depressive than melancholic, but "Pitseleh", "Waltz #2" and "Oh, well, okay" deserve a nod from melancholy perspective."

""Reclined among these packs of reasons for to smoke the days away into the evenings... all these poses of classical torture ruined my mind like the snake in the orchard." Need I say more?"
A Century Ends
A Century Ends
"The whole album seems to be drenched in the sort of melancholy that soaks the poetry of English romantics, but "Shine" steals the show as one of the saddest love songs I've ever heard."
It'll End In Tears
It'll End In Tears
"Darkly beautiful melancholy from the Cocteau Twins/Dead Can Dance factory."
The Best of Townes Van Zandt

"The late, great TVZ had a saying:"There are two kinds of music; zip-a-dee-doo-dah and The Blues." Well, none of the songs here is "zip-a-dee-do-dah". Especially true for "Tecumseh Valley"..."
The Trinity Session
The Trinity Session
"Hauntingly beautiful recording from the Trinity church in Toronto (?), with surprisingly melancholic rendition of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane"."
Closing Time

"No vocal growling and instrumental cacophony of later-day Tom Waits here. Just pure, melancholic longing."
