It has that quality, especially when the strings come in.

The MoFi SACD is very crankable. Highly recommended.

So funny that I remembered how "heavy" this album is, but forgot just how much acoustic loveliness there is on it. Nice to have the reminder, what with Funk #49 dancing around in my head so often, how good the rest of it is.

The acoustic guitars on Ashes are sublime and then those strings come in to extend the melancholy.

absurdly long fade-out at the end of Side 2 to bookend the absurdly long fade-in at the beginning of Side 2

i dunno... but i watched blade runner 2049 just yesterday for the first time (and i loved it, by the way.) so many epic, beautifully shot scenes of a future of a wasteland, but still human and moving.
