Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Sun Kil Moon: Mark Kozelek, Geoff Stanfield, Anthony Koustos, Tim Mooney.
  • Principally recorded at Toast, Hyde Street Studios, San Francisco, California.
  • After 2001's OLD RAMON (which had actually been recorded years earlier), singer/songwriter Mark Kozelek retired the Red House Painters name, and his next non-solo outing, 2003's GHOST OF THE GREAT HIGHWAY, was credited to Sun Kil Moon. (Maybe he got tired of being filed next to the Red Hot Chili Peppers in record stores?) While in many ways the album is a continuation of the sound on the Painters' SONGS FOR A BLUE GUITAR, here Kozelek streamlines the material, refraining from extended six-string freak-outs and painfully confessional lyrics, in favor of sharply honed rock-inflected tunes and gorgeous, string-laden tracks. The result is one of the most directly affecting and immediately appealing records of Kozelek's career, and those intrigued by, but wary of, the Red House Painters will likely be pleasantly surprised with Sun Kil Moon's GHOSTS OF THE GREAT HIGHWAY.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (11/27/03, p.92) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "It's easy to compare Mark Kozelek to Neil Young but the horse that Kozelek rides is much more sad and wild than it is crazy....Kozelek's squalling dirges turn despair into a kind of elemental beauty..."

Q (p.136) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A} surprisingly uplifting record, Kozelek relaxing into a new emotional suppleness as he mixes songs about boxers with an a romantic ear for the rhythms and poetry of American life."

Q (3/04, p.113) - 4 stars out of 5 - "With Kozelek's compelling ache of a voice to the fore, his star deserves to wax anew."

Uncut (3/04, p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Kozelek has found a way of keeping the engulfing intensity of his early work while expanding his range."

Magnet (11/03, p.108) - "...It's a gorgeous record brimming with unhurried songs...When songs are this transporting, you can only hope they'll last forever..."

Mojo (Publisher) (2/04, p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[Kozelek has] never sounded more inspired, achieving a rich balance of haunting atmosphere and twangy grit."
