A Silver Mt. Zion - He Has Left Us Alone But Shafts Of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner Of Our Rooms

The orchestral and inspired 2000 debut release from A Silver Mt. Zion.

"For the most part, He Has Left Us Alone breaks little ground in how it conveys emotion, employing descending chromaticism coupled with occasional major thirds to evoke a perpetual sadness, broken by occasional glimmers of happiness. What makes the album such an accomplishment is the fact that these standards have been implemented with passion, skill, and above all, an almost supernatural talent." - Pitchfork
