One of the best folk albums I've heard in my entire life. Up there with Sufjan's "Carrie & Lowell", Simon & Garfunkel's "Bookends", Fleet Foxes' "Helplessness Blues", etc. This is truly on another level; it's a timeless sociopolitical thinkpiece with religious and other existential implications. The celestial atmospheres that Hull and Devine craft here are haunting and nothing short of breathtaking. This is worthy of the "classic" title. If you enjoy indie-folk, then go dim the lights, fire up your vinyl player or your headphones, grab a glass of your favorite wine, and let Bad Books' "III" move you.
