The one hundred ninety-first album: #191 Nick Drake - Bryter Layter

Nick Drake's folk music may need the feeling of a grey, wet Thursday more than a sunny July like I had for the previous album. The melancholic vocals get a good counter point in the music, with the different instruments often adding some optimism to the thoughtful songs. The instrumental help set the mood, creating a natural atmosphere that helps create that setting. It's a lovely, magical album, with Northern Sky being the peak of that atmosphere.
