38/50

The fifth LP from the resplendently mellow Vile is a beautiful sinkhole of meditative guitar mysticism. The meandering tunes roll along on craggy, ambling licks and the wisdom gleaned from whiling away his days in a "shame chamber" — quite contentedly, it would seem, judging by how pretty these songs are.
