Sorrowful Songs

Lately, Aaron over at AlmostCool has taken to reviewing some of his favorite releases, in addition to the genres that he regularly reviews. This week, he reviews Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs), giving it a perfect 10. And if you’ve heard Górecki’s work (or have seen the end credits of Fearless) you’ll understand why. It’s an absolutely beautiful album, almost devastatingly so, and one that has reduced me to a sobbing wreck on many an occasion.
