A Closer Listen list 'The Rustle of the Stars' in their 'Best 25 Winter Albums Of All Time' chart. Nice!
"The triumph and tragedy of the early explorers is lovingly outlined by Knox and Oberland in this bleak but emotionally satisfying opus. Occasionally a captain and crew would return from the polar regions outwardly victorious, but inwardly hollowed and hardened. These musicians find sympathy in their stories and inject empathy into their eulogies. The Rustle of the Stars imagines their hopes and their struggles as they wander into the great unknown."
