Kozelek’s skill as a lyricist, and indeed as a singer, is to balance nostalgia and depth of feeling with prosaic clarity; the listener is his confidante as he tells tales of heartache and addiction that are both haunting and a little mystical.
On last year's album Benji, and this year's Universal Themes Kozelek has perfected his art. Even though he has a distinctive style, seldom do Sun Kil Moon's tracks repetitive. Kozelek is skilled in capturing the variety and nuance of human life; the characters that populate his songs are drawn with detail and sympathy.
