Editorial Reviews

The new album by Sun Kil Moon, entitled 'Admiral Fell Promises' will be released on July 13th, 2010 by Caldo Verde Records. This 60 minute, ten song album is Sun Kil Moon's fourth, but only the third of original material after 2003's 'Ghosts of the Great Highway' and 2008's 'April'. Additionally it is the first that is all acoustic, played entirely by Mark Kozelek on nylon string guitar.

By Red on Black TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 13, 2010
Format: Audio CD
Do not trust the following since for this reviewer Mark Kozelek a.k.a. Sun Kil Moon could sing the contents of the menu from the local Burger Den and five stars would follow. Ever since his days in the Red House Painters a growing number of people have been in "on the secret" that the spellbinding voice and songs of Kozelek rank up there with the best in modern music and that "Ghosts of the Great Highway" and "April" have been two of the greatest albums from the past decade. "Carry me Ohio" off "Ghosts" remains one of my all time favourite songs and as such for this reviewer this is one of the most anticipated albums of 2010. It has streamed on Kozelek's Myspace page for well over a week and is now super glued in the CD player.

Kozelek makes music that is haunting, deep, melancholy and often very intense. On "Admiral Fell Promises" his latest album under the Sun Kill Moon moniker he locates in his music much more in the territory of previous songs like "Heron Blue" rather than the Neil Young orientated rock of "Salvador Sanchez". This is fully an acoustic set performed entirely by Kozelek on nylon-stringed guitar with a Spanish ambience pervading throughout its course.

"Admiral Fell Promises" in terms of seasonal cycles is a very autumnal album. It reeks of an atmosphere of falling leaves, cold grey days and a certain nostalgia linked to the imminent arrival of winter. It starts off in splendid style with "Alesund" opening with a long guitar introduction and drifting into a brilliant melody slightly reminiscence of Bob Mould's "Sunspots". Kozelek's guitar playing throughout is immense and his vocals are clear, a fault on some of his songs in the past.

A friend of mine lent me his copy of 'Down Coulourful Hill' in 1992 when I was going through a particularly tough break-up and Kozelek has been with me ever since. I've had a drink with him, serendipitously, at the Crocodile Cafe when he shared a booth with my friends and I before a SKM show and the guy is all class. Hands down, one of the best singer/songwriters/voices ever. Never heard a song I didn't like from any RHP, SKM, or solo works and his live banter with crowds is reason enough to see him perform--funny as hell. He was interviewed in the early 1990s in either NME or Melody Maker--can't recall--during his solo tour of Europe sans the RHP band and there was a great quote by someone attending one of his shows who had shouted during one of his sets, "No wonder she left you", and that quote has stayed with me all this time and cracks me up everytime I think about it within the relativity of his lyrics...Admiral Fell Promises is simply another fantastic release from one of this generation's greatest muscial artists. I lived in Andalucia (Sevilla) quite some time ago so I naturally love Mark's new satorical search within Spain/Spanish music. Not enough positive things I can say about this guy. From his REO Speedwagon to AC/DC to Modest Mouse covers to eveything he's done, I hope the ride goes on and on and on...

In fact, I took a couple of weeks off from the album before revisiting it. As another commenter said, it is about finding the space of this music. It's not a room one walks into most days; it's even deeper in the heart--the things haunting the corners of sleep, or moments of dogged hope felt alone as rain brings day to evening, or a gray sunrise barely tendrilled by streaks of rose. At any rate, as I come back to the album, the songs do vary, sometimes greatly, in music and in mood, which I could not pick up on in my first listens. I fall into the album now, recognize its rainy windowpanes and small, ornate bedstands, feel it as a small European town hotel room I stay in while traveling alone. For those whose souls are rent by MK's vision, AFP is well worth the investment, although the cd is less readily accessible than April or Ghosts of the Great Highway. Give it its space, then sit by the window and listen.

This is such a beautiful, haunting and lovely cd....what I feel may be a distillation of all that is lovely and tender in Mark Kozelek's strange heart. I love each song...a spell of peace is cast upon me when I listen to it...his soft guitar melodies, sometimes flamenco is style, melt around his gorgeous voice as the sun through the trees. I came upon Admiral Fell Promises in a dark time and the music was and is like a tonic. Once, I found an old glass bottle at an antique store...one of the "snake oil" tonic bottles that read "Kills Pain": This is how I feel about Admiral Fell Promises.

I was never a fan of Red House Painters, but I absolutely love this album. The songs are terrific, and the album creates a beautiful, somewhat melancholy mood. Decidedly low key, this is a great choice for anyone who is looking for a quiet album with strong melodies. The guitar work is impressive. For the audiophiles: The sonics are very good on the album.

I bought this album for my girlfriend (and understandably, kind of for myself as well), and we have greatly enjoyed Kozelek's musing vocals and skilled classical guitar.

This album is certainly not of the genre that will provide a catchy tune to mumble along with mindlessly while driving and texting, or doing something else stupid. Rather, it's a great album to immerse oneself in and appreciate great musicianship (I really do think his classical guitar skills are superb). That's not to say that I think you shouldn't memorize and sing his lyrics, because it's wonderful when my girlfriend sings these songs while we're together. In sum, this is music to be taken and digested thoughtfully and intentionally, and certainly, it's enjoyable music to experience.

Thanks,
Tucker
