Absolutely Beautiful
Some of the songs even made me tear up with how incredible the melodies were.

This is a great album to listen to while driving on the highway with the sun setting in the distance. Standouts for me are Hurricane, La Belle Fleur Sauvage, Meet Me In The Woods and Frozen Pines. My one complaint is that the album is a bit long and the production becomes monotonous. Also, if you listen to Love Like Ghosts and Meet Me In The Woods back to back, you'll notice the vocal melodies are virtually identical.

Songs 2-6 are amazing and are musical bliss. Until the Night Turns speeds up the tempo, Dead Man's Hands is amazing, Hurricane is one of the most fun tracks on the LP and can be replayed over and over again. La Belle, to my ears, is the best song on the LP. It is so beautiful and haunting.

La Belle is followed by another fun upbeat track: Fool for Love, which again can be played over and over. I think the song World Ender is important to the concept of Strange Trails, and while I like the beat, its not one of my favorite tracks on the LP.
