Review #36: Okkervil River - I Am Very Far

I think it is wonderful that a band, such as 'Okkervil River' can produce six albums, and still have that element of magic and beauty flow from their music. 'I Am Very Far', despite the grammatical malfunction in the title, really holds its self and portrays the band as people who really care about their music and what they stand for. 'Lay Of The Last Survivor' is a perfect example of the purity that they have. It's simple, relaxing, and refreshing sound feels almost like a breeze brushing past your face.
They don't try to push boundaries, or set benchmarks. They just add a breath of fresh air to their already established sound.

Best Tracks: 'Lay Of The Last Survivour', 'We Need A Myth', 'Your Past Life As A Blast'.
