    It's impossible to pick a favourite song out of this masterpiece. Every song is as beautiful and unique as a Monet painting.

    @mordwyr: I'm not sure if you're trying to insult Fleet Foxes or Mumford and Sons.

    Does anyone else enjoy hiking to this? For me it's the perfect soundtrack to accompany a leisurely walk through mountains/forests/parks, etc. Definitely an ideal sunrise album!

    Here's a free-to-download album that sounds a lot like this one and is surprisingly about as good: http://blackatlantic.bandcamp.com/album/the-black-atlantic-reverence-for-fallen-trees-2009 (honest recommendation, I'm totally not affiliated)

    for an album, this was always my choice accompaniment to a sunrise, but works equally well at sunset, as a dichotomy in its expression

    I've always really loved this album, but I'm still convinced Helplessness Blues trumps it. This is more poppy than folky in comparison. And HB is more folky in the traditional sense.. which is what I prefer as far as "folk" music goes.

    Epic status.

    I still say it's the best thing they've ever done. Helplessness Blues is wonderful and a modern masterpiece, but this is probably the apex of modern folk. This or For Emma, Forever Ago. It's a toss-up.
