Robert Kerwin From the deeply religious feel of "Death in a Garden" to the light "A Chance Grain of Rye" to the poignant "Famine and Death of a Mother", the range of emotions conveyed by this collection is amazing. Like with all of Andy's music, I'm left in awe, wondering how he does it. Favorite track: A Chance Grain of Rye.

Mubla Na Thguob This album appears in al lot of collections and it's clear why when you give it a spin. It's a true full album experience and I never feel the need to stop it early. In fact, it's so special that I only play it when I have time to sit and listen to it completely. Favorite track: Death in a Garden.

Guido Dresmé I love this record because it takes you on a journey. Sit with the music on in a room, and let it come over you. It will take you places. It's the second album that does that for me, the first one being Dark Side of de Moon. Thank you Andy. Thank you very much. Favorite track: Famine and the Death of a Mother.

This album follows the story of the Lykov family, who lived isolated in the Russian wilderness for over 40 years before their discovery by geologists in 1978.

Agafia, born in the wilderness in 1943, is the last remaining member of the family. She continues to live in the harsh Siberian landscape to this day.
