Five The sorrow feeling of non-existence. What once was, was forgotten. Favorite track: All eyes bewildered.

Ricardo Barros Almost feels like a surreal prologue to the vastness of "Everywhere at the end of time". The Caretaker lives on. Favorite track: I might be vanishing.

Polly This album begins with one of the most mournful and depressing instrumentals I've ever heard, and ends with THE most mournful and depressing instrumental I've ever heard. Between these 2 tracks there's 12 more broken and beautiful remnants of what once was ballroom pop, as well as 3 haunting vocal tracks that become existentially terrifying when you really think about their existence.

All things considered, I'm tempted to call this unassuming pile of assorted outtakes the best Caretaker record. Favorite track: And bliss everywhere bliss.

about

EVERYWHERE, AN EMPTY BLISS
------------------------------------------------

*AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD FOR A LIMITED TIME

Work on 'Everywhere, at the end of time' was all consuming
as you can imagine. All work and no play, all work and no play.

In celebration of its completion and only for a limited time*
here is a surprise golden farewell.

Compliments of the house.

Offering you one last chance to raise a charged glass for
those we lost along the way, for all the works, for those ghosts
from our past, for our uncertain future and for The Caretaker.

You are of course welcome to purchase me a drink if you find
this work to be of personal value.

As the old saying goes "I'm the type of guy who likes to know
who's buying their drinks, Lloyd."

Thanks eternally for your support.

C'est fini.
