The Finally LP is a compilation album by Mark Kozelek. The CD was released on December 9, 2008 via Caldo Verde Records.
Finally may be LP length but it lacks an album's cohesiveness. There's no big statement here, at least not like there was with April, his second album with Sun Kil Moon. However, the looseness of the tracklist allows him to indulge some punishing metal riffs and howling emo madman vocals. Kozelek is the king of somber and of course gives these covers his signature reading: slow, melancholy, full of stoic vocals and steady, shimmery guitar. This solemn take doesn't work against the LP, but in its favor

Mark Kozelek’s The Finally LP falls outside of this definition, to an extent, because it was assembled as a compilation rather than a straightforward album: The sources are varied, ranging from unreleased tribute albums to a benefit record for the Minneapolis bridge collapse, and Kozelek’s selections, which tend toward the obscure, invariably settle into the web of his deceitfully simplistic sound. The songs may be simply constructed, but instrumental sparseness has always been indicative of Kozelek’s style. It also provides the locus on which the album’s most interesting quality hinges, offering a method to reverse-engineer Kozelek’s often reductive musical style.
Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). Over the years Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon and his earlier band, Red House Painters, has gained well deserved praise for his extraordinary songwriting. At the same time he has developed a parallel reputation for his unique covers of other people s material. The album also includes radio show rarities, a previously unreleased version of Husker Du s ''Celebrated Summer'' and two original instrumentals. Disc: 1. Piano Song.
