This review is from: Dark Night Of The Soul [12" VINYL] (Audio CD)
A long overdue release for this excellent work that blurs the boundaries between art and music. Is it a photography book with music or a lavishly illustrated CD? In reality this is a superb package with a dream line up of cult stars of the indie alternative scene. At times its not quite as strong as one would hope but that would be churlish criticism in light of the ambition of the work. The sad thing though, one which will probably always overshadow the release is that two of the artists really did experience the darkest night of the soul between recording this and its final release. Its hard not to feel a deep deep sadness to see the dedication to the two men who took their own lives within about 4 months of each other. The album now stands as tragic prophecy of the dark night of the soul of two extremely talented men.

Except Danger Mouse isn't dead! Just Mark Linkous. Or are you talking about someone else?

The reviewer is referring to Vic Chesnutt, who sings on Grim Augury and sadly died after an overdose late last year.
