This is the first album I've listened to from The Caretaker and it's really great. There's something extremely special in how striking and emotional it is while not being explicitly about anything (except its concept)
Favorite track: Camaraderie at arms length.
If you liked "Everywhere at the end of time", I think you'll also get a kick out of "An empty bliss beyond this World" as well, especially if you really only liked the first three Stages of Eateot.
Favorite track: Libet's delay.
The Caretaker conjures a quieter, more introspective spirit, lost in his own mind amidst a low-lit labyrinth of ever-decaying and antediluvian shellac phrases. Sourced from a mysterious collection of 78s, these vague snippets of archaic sonics reflect the ability of Alzheimers patients to recall the songs of their past, and with them recollections of places, people, moods and sensations.

During the final days of writing my thesis I listened to this album on repeat for hours at a time. It was like being suspended in one eternal moment while all that changed around me were the ripples and eddies of a slowly meandering river. catharina_bee
