I just encountered Grouper for the first time and I was immediately intrigued by the beautiful ambient sound of this record. I love the strange rhythms, and the lyrics are evoking some strong nostalgia. The whole album sounds great!
Favorite track: Vapor Trails.

LIke tman1015, I am a little scared of this album. It is a deeply shocking and accurate musical portrayal of senile dementia -inasmuch as I've (sadly) observed members of friends and family become gradually subsumed by it.
Yet it is captivating, there are many moments of beauty along the way. I cannot stop going back for another listen.
I wonder if anyone (apart from the artist) has managed to listen all the way through in one sitting. I am not even close to managing yet. Simon Woolf
