That's one of my favourite songs too, so beautiful. I haven't listened to Nick in ages, I really should dig the albums out again.

Thanks to the DDD tournament for introducing me to River Man and Northern Sky, certainly up there with the most beautiful tunes I've heard ...... if everything is as good as it says on the tiers, should i get the box set ?

May as well get the boxset. The thing about Drake is that none of his albums are really more acclaimed than each other, all three are pretty much equally well loved.

from what ive been reading up, and the reviews on wiki and stuff, you should keep all 3 albums the same color, orange or red....

Good tier, honestly I would put all three main releases in yellow, but if you have to put one in red it would be Bryter Layter

my question too , all 3 albums are pure gold , but yeah , the red going to bryter makes sense, though it still has his best song ....

Does anyone else think Five Leaves Left is the defintive Nick Drake album? People only ever talk about Pink Moon, but I'm just realizing how incredible FLL really is.

Yeah, I think Five Leaves Left is my favorite. Higher highs, lower lows, and not as cohesive as Pink Moon, but probably my favorite.
