5.0 out of 5 stars Albums like this only come along a few times in one's life., March 27, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Good Morning Spider (Audio CD)
I have over a thousand CD's. I listen to a wide variety of music. Over the years, there have been many albums I've liked, and quite a few I've loved. But then there's a category of releases which exist in a rarefied atmosphere all their own. Albums which possess the ability to still seem fresh and vital after listening to them for years. I only know of a few albums which I would place in this category: Interbabe Concern by The Loud Family. Marquee Moon by Television. Tabula Rasa by Arvo Part. Gentlemen by Afghan Whigs. Maybe the Pixies Surfer Rosa, though that's becoming less appealing as I become an old coot. Anyway, only time will tell, but it seems that Good Morning Spider by Sparklehorse will join that select few as an album which went beyond providing entertainment, and actually became profound events for me. Geez, I sound like a simpering fanboy, but the album is truly that good. Though a wide variety of recording styles are employed by Mr Linkous, the album has an undeniable, powerful flow to it. Honest, organic, and deeply beautiful. I can only hope that Sparklehorse has a long, equally as rich career.
