Format: Audio CD
After some of his earlier success, Phil Elverum has seeming gone in every direction possible. He kicked things off by releasing an album that was nearly strictly vocals and rhythms ("Mount Eerie") and even released that album in the two separate pieces in limited edition. Then, he adopted the namesake of the album and put out a variety of albums that included collaborations with Julie Doiron & Fred Squire and a couple releases on his own label (P.W. Elverum & Sun) that pushed into an art object realm. One of which ("pts. 6 & 7") is an incredible earth-friendly 132 page book with a 10' record that definitely falls into a, "for the hardcore fans" category.

Despite the slew of different recordings (including one made in a desolate Norwegian cabin), "Wind's Poem" in some ways feels like the first true new Mount Eerie album since the aforementioned album by The Microphones of the same name. Twelve songs run just over 54 minutes and veers back and forth between droning dirges of slow core wonder, cinematic shufflers that draw heavily from Angelo Badalamentit, and incredibly loud passages that sound like the group doing their best conjuring of doom metal.

The P.W. Elverum label is pitching it as, "the best record ever made by Mount Eerie or any related projects," and after spending some time with it, I have a hard time arguing with that statement. When all is said and done, I may find myself ultimately going back to The Glow pt. 2 a bit more than this, but it's certainly a substantial release, and one that seems like it will have even more sway when the temperature drops and seems to fall in line even more with the sounds on the release.

My familiarity with Phil's music only goes so far as the Microphones The Glow Pt. 2 and Mount Eerie, and now Wind's Poem. So I only can compare this album with those two. But this goes WAY farther and deeper than those two works, and farther than I thought music could go. Most reviews of Wind's Poem are fairly good, but in my opinion Mount Eerie has outdone itself here. It's such an honest and heartfelt struggle with eternal questions, the internal violence and fear portrayed with as much care and attention as the peaceful, spiritual moments. This is the most spiritual album I know of at the moment, he really gets at the heart of being human. It's as devastating and cold as it is beautiful and warm. I have a feeling I will be coming back to this album even in 50 years. I can see some people not liking this album because it is too intense and too serious. But anyone who's had a spiritual crisis or has meditated on the profoundly terrifying spiritual questions, this album addresses these issues with humanity, feeling, and honesty in a way few records do. Highly suggested for poetic souls.

This music is very hard to pigeon-hole into a genre. Main man Phil Elverum has stated several times that he's been heavily influenced by black metal as of late, and it definitely shows in many of the tracks, but calling this Mount Eerie's "black metal album" would be an enormous understatement. There are bits and pieces of his folk beginnings still lingering about here and there, some almost-electronica elements, noise-art-rock, metal, is that some jazz in there?... whatever it is, it's dark as hell and ridiculously intricate. The album's own website declares it "the best record ever made by Mount Eerie or any related projects," and they're not too far from the truth.

it's unfortunate that the sound quality of this album is terrible, as the lyrics and music are quite good. i would have given wind's poem more than three stars, but it's frustrating to listen to it because of all the ssshhhhhhhhhh noise. maybe it's supposed to be the wind? whatever it is, i don't reccomend getting this album because of it. try lost wisdom instead.
