This is the best album of 2020. I'm glad I have it in digital format, because I would have utterly worn out any physical format.
John's subject matter is always personal, but in this album, he somehow makes the epic personal. He tells the story of the death of the ancient world in this light I've never really considered it in. He makes this random segment of late antiquity somehow unsettlingly relevant to 2020. It's an album of change, of entropy, but also of defiance, of hope. PRESS AN LP <3 lordscrubjay
