This album lives up to the band's name. It is indeed eerie. The music excels in using instruments to evoke a feeling of mystery and often a bit of dread. Phil Elverum's voice seems to appear like a ghost throughout the album, blending flawlessly with the uneasiness, mysteriousness or, at times, the cacophony of the instrumental music.

It's hard to say whether I like the music or not. It doesn't make for great background music while working or doing random chores as it gives off a sense of uneasiness. At times, the music seems a bit disjointed and disconcerting because it quickly shifts from a calm eeriness to a heavier, almost grunge-like sound.

It's also hard to make comparisons. It kind of reminds of Damien Rice but with a bit of creepiness and less emoting but it's clearly not Damien Rice. It also reminds me of post-rock, but it isn't quite post-rock, neither. Either way, it's an interesting listen if you're up for a new musical experience. Not for everyone. I've had this album for a month now and it's yet to grow on me.

This album is pretty good but it gets a little demanding and becomes uneven. I would recommend to anyone who is into downtempo stuff and looking for something new but Clear Moon is by no means an album that the average consumer needs to rush out and buy.
