    I can't believe this album. Even though it's mostly sad and mellow, everything he's done is almost boring in comparison; even though it's all amazing, this almost describable. Simply a genius.

    I'd never heard of this guy, but I just downloaded Vincent O'Brien from matadorrecords.com and I'm now convinced I have to buy this record.
