Dude from Sunny Day Real Estate. This is from, iirc, a period in his life where he locked himself in a room for like a year or something to meditate or pray and try to figure stuff out. Supposedly it's about God, but in that underlying way which many artists choose to express themselves on that matter. His singing style travels from gentle to screeching - not in a super-emo (though partly emo) way, rather very melodic, with swift tempo changes over something between plain acoustic and Jon Brion-esque production. My guy at the record store considers this a top 3 all time album. 320 bit rate.
