What a find.

I broused this album after seeing that it scored well on metacritic and found that all the praise it has gotten was well deserved. Although the book end songs (Sun, Arise!, Sun's Arising) are only alright, everything song in between is pure gold. I was so impressed that I bought some of his earlier albums too. I personally think "Song for Zula", "Muchacho's Song", "A Charm/A Blade" and "The Quotidian Beasts" are the stand out songs, but this is one of those albums where my favorite song keeps changing. Well worth my money.
