Chris Ingalls: A beautiful nightmare. Chelsea Wolfe revels in minor keys and stark acoustic guitars with this leftover from last year’s Abyss album. Like a lot of the best dark stuff, there’s a glimmer of hope creeping through, and Wolfe gives us enough of a peak to let us know that it can’t be all bad. But maybe it is? This is the gorgeous sound of isolation, like being left alone in the woods at night with a tape recorder and a guitar. [8/10]
