great review.
Silberman conceived and wrote Hospice over the course of two years in his Brooklyn, N.Y., apartment, as a way to cope with the illness and death of someone who was close to him, but abusive.
"Hospice is essentially about myself and another person," Silberman says. "About our relationship and its dissolution. I had other people in mind, friends who have been in similar situations, or who have recently found themselves in dysfunctional environments."

Interesting. I thought I had read in the liner notes (which I seemed to have misplaced) that they were based on the crumbling of a relationship and he used the death as a metaphor

Good idea, start with "Bear," and "Two."

That's surprisingly high for Pitchfork. They usually rip things apart, they're very critical.

It's a great album, the review seemed like a bunch of hot air to me though.

Ha ha, well pitchfork's a lot of hot air. They come of as elitists pretty easily, but occasionally have some good stuff. I do like what I've heard from this record so far.

Usually I thoroughly enjoy their reviews, at least it got a good score this deserves the pitchfork hype
