It’s A Wonderful Life
(Capitol, 2001)

It’s A Wonderful Life is beautiful like a slow motion campfire or watching a Polaroid picture as it develops. Spiked with nostalgia, Sparklehorse, in his follow-up to the schizophrenic Good Morning Spider, created his most focused and endearing record to date. Tinged with sadness but magnificently life affirming, the feel of this album is written in its title.

I love that you love this album and I love imagining that this is what was spinning in your portable CD player when you walked by me in the Commons at Davis High wearing your giant headphones over your giant hoodie.
