Benji is the sixth studio album by American indie folk act Sun Kil Moon, released on 11 February 2014 on Caldo Verde Records. Later, thoughts on lost love and attempted suicide detour to Panera Bread, and a midnight show of Led Zeppelin's The Song Remains the Same becomes a soul-splitting apology to a kid Kozelek bullied. Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts Of The Great Highway NEW LP Condition: New. Benji Tracklist. In the nature of this window-view of his life any conclusion on our part is purely personal so the only one I can offer is my own. While Benji is consumed with death, sadness, and tragedy, there's gratitude within this melancholy, and its Kozeleks most life-affirming record. Folk singer Mark Kozelek's remarkable sixth album as Sun Kil Moon feels less like a collection of songs than a series of eulogies delivered in real time. Any price and availability information displayed on the linked website at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product. Sun Kil Moon - Dogs. Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts Of The Great Highway Condition: Brand New. On Benji, and even more particularly on some of the live versions featured on the additional disc that accompanies the first ten thousand copies, Mark Kozelek is at least as piercing and persuasive as in his best output over the last two decades. Benji is one of the rawest, most honest, and most disquieting records of 2014

I really wish this would get scheduled for a 180 gram repress sometime soon

Gholbithris
Looking for an EU based Benji press (any color), will pay 60€. Have heart for a desiring but also poor student. ;-)

One of my personal favourites. At first I didn't hold much love for this album, but at second listen, and upon properly reading through the lyrics, I realised my prior mistake. I'm not usually a fan of this type of music: one that is sad and accompanied by rough vocals. However, there is something so sincere about the melancholy and thoughts shared on this album that the listener cannot help to connect with the palpable emotion. On too many occasions do vocals such as these come off as melodramatic or manufactured, but here they sound fittingly broken, vulnerable and reflective. The lyrics songs themselves are fascinating in sounding like epic ballads, but when analysed tell tales of simple provincial life and Kozelack's personal tragedies. The simple, yet infectious, upwards arpeggios perfectly serve to back the minute-by-minute storytelling and let Mark Kozelack's visceral vocals take centre stage. Occasionally, the music builds in such a subtle way that the emotions is only heightened, such as on the fantastic track "Dogs". The packaging on the vinyl additions, which I believe is identical for the coloured editions is lovely as well (I purchased the blue vinyl). I cannot recommend this album enough and rate it a perfect five stars.

Miromice
Is it just me or they used somewhat different takes and cuts on the vinyl version? Take 'Micheline', I bet he sings slightly different from MP3/iTunes version, plus there is a piano on the background, I haven't heard that one before. I own clear LP version.

Cobandis
My yellow copy plays great, no problems at all! Fantastic pressing!

Yndanol
My mind is blown at how many people are trying to flip the vinyl edition of this at the same time. It just came out and It's only going to go back down in price eventually once people realize they can't all make a killing on a new record. Another pressing of 2000, some on red and the rest on clear vinyl is due for October 2014.

Manazar
the demand seems to be there!

Dead Samurai
Thank you for this information, I really want a vinyl copy but these prices are offensive.

Tolrajas
My yellow copy is also awful. If possible, I recommend looking at other pressings.

Fomand
Sorry, wrong release.

Tiainar
Needs a vinyl release. Such a good album.

Gietadia
Can't believe this is not out on vinyl. Major bummer.

Bragis
Major bummer indeed.

Fesho
Dear Mark, please put this out on vinylLove,Matt

asAS
My yellow copy has no issues. It’s dead quiet and sounds great on all four sides.

Majin
All the yellow ones are misprints? wax is somehow melted wrong etc? my local store will send all yellow issues back to distro

Yggfyn
I edited the track listing order of the live songs. Not 100% sure why it's been wrong for so long, but Truck Driver (Live) is the last song on Side C, not Micheline (Live) as previously stated. The back cover of the album in the image gallery clearly shows this. It also does play Truck Driver, so it's not a label error issue.

Tam
My yellow pressing sounds great

Zaryagan
My yellow pressing also sounds great, although side A is slightly off centre as people have mention.

Marilbine
To all with the mispressed off-center LP1 I suggest writing to [email protected] They are sending out replacement yellow LP1's.

Ienekan
sides C & D of my yellow pressing is incredibly fuzzy in the right channel. What a bummer.

Thorgahuginn
My yellow copy is also awful. If possible, I recommend looking at other pressings.

Jeyn
take my advice. ignore the yellow press (side A has defect off centre pressing). Buy the Black, sounds far superior to my humble audiophile ears..

Golkis
Yellow pressing has a defect off centre press on Side A.

Drelalak
getting mine next week!
