    hah, perfect pronunciation of Ålesund, kinda like saying "awlesunn" for americans. The "d" is silent.. The name means "eel sound/strait" describing the area of the town's location.

    You're right, but the lyric is "There's so much love I wanna cry", which is a line from the song 'Wop-A-Din-Din' by Red House Painters (Mark's tribute to his cat). Amazing song.

    I think he sings about a girl, which was in the croud, when he has played a show in Alesund. So i believed, there would be a song where Kozelek sings : "I couldn't place a thought, without you being so near." but this isn't the case. So I still do not know what exactly this song is about. But it's so atmospheric and wonderful.

    This is my new favorite Koz song, at least this week. The guitar playing is brilliant, I love the subtle strings. This entire album reveals itself very slowly but it's lovely.

    this is indeed a very sad tune. but the guitar-playing is very good. and i like the sound of it, too. koz´s voice could be used as a radiator in a cold flat. 4 rooms the least.

    So, so lonely sounding. I couldn't love this song any more if I tried.

    Found this album on the bookend where all the "featured" albums are at my local library. Sun Kil Moon is incredible. I would love to see him live some day.

    The first line of this song is genius. It immediately draws us into "conversation" with Kozelek, as if we prompted the reply--and so, the music--before the album even begins. Gotta love this one.

    My favorite song released in 2010, off of my favorite album released in 2010.

    "no, this is not my guitar, I'm bringing it to a friend...." man, those first lyrics of the album are just beautiful and heartbraking at the same time. clearly THE album of the year so far. thank you so much, Mark Kozelek!

    Wait whaaat? I live in Ålesund, why is this song called that? Never really listened to this band or Red House Painters before, just saw this song title by coincidence. Pretty cool.

    I am actually pretty impressed by how good his pronunciation is when he sings "Ålesund". He nailed it.
