Agalloch, Marrow of the Spirit 2xLP

Not much I can say about this one that you don't know already. One of last year's best albums, and probably one of the best albums of the past decade. From the wonderfully expressive vocals to the beautiful guitar work, from Aesop Dekker's perfect drums to the indescribably melancholic atmospheres... this album has everything one could want. Some of the absolutely finest work of Agalloch's career is here on this double 180-gram LP, packed in a beautiful heavyweight gatefold package with raised gloss text, and an 11" x 11" booklet with lyrics and stunning artwork. Available in clear vinyl from Midheaven Mailorder, or grab the special edition blue vinyl (sure to sell out quickly) from Profound Lore.
