Great Album!

First off...Buy the Graphic Novel Blankets... Secondly... Buy this album. Never and I mean...never have I heard a soundtrack that so perfectly fits the mood of a book. This album is hands down the best 'ambient' music i've ever heard in my life. The album is a slow, mourningful and quiet take on the graphic novel blankets, written by Craig Thompson. The somber tone is beautifully mastered combining an atmostsphere tone with the books already quiet and secretive nature. Its so hard to describe the album you have to listen to it yourself. Put your head phones on, close the door, lay out on your bed, close your eyes, and just let yourself be swallowed. This album is a great companion to the novel Blankets and I suggest you all read it and definately give this album a listen to!
