Deep Elm Twenty Year Retrospective

3AM Eternal: Desert City Soundtrack: Funeral Car (2003)

At the time, I said this:

Funeral Car is not an easy listen. It’s bleak, depressing and morose–heck, how could it not be, with titles such as “My Hell,” “Drawn & Quartered,” “Casket,” “Something About a Ghost,” as well as that album title? Though it took me a little while to finally warm up to¬†Funeral Car’s¬†bleakness, I have to admit that I was impressed enough to realize that Desert City Soundtrack have made one stunningly dark album. Comparisons are going to be made to Black Heart Procession; their overwhelming piano and the bleak outlook on life may be similar, but they’re pushing the envelope with the occasional horse reference/image.

If you download and enjoy the album, please donate to the cause.
