3 stars This is a split single that was released in 2004 and features music from two Neo-folk bands. The first track is exclusive to this split single, at least to this point. It is Agalloch "The Wolves of Timberline" and was made during their acoustic, neo-folk phase, thus it isn't the extreme black metal sound you may have heard from them, but more of a lovely and peaceful track led mostly by acoustic guitar. The music is quite melodious and pensive, as you would expect from the band during that time. The B-side is from the (usually) instrumental band "Nest" who usually play a soft, instrumental neo-folk with dark undertones. You do get that sound with this track, yet the surprise here is that Agalloch also appears on this version of the track "Last Vestige of Old Joy" helping with (oddly enough for Nest) gruff, yet soft vocals and guitar. This version and the "Nest Only" version are now available on Nest's compilation "Within a Decade", which was released in 2014,

Both tracks are beautifully dark, and are appealing enough for anyone that love the neo-folk sound, especially the acoustic or pensive style presented here. There were 1000 printed, so there may be a chance you could run into one somewhere out there, and, unless they want a high price for it, it is definitely worth picking up. However, it might not be well appreciated by the casual fan as it would be for a big fan. Nevertheless, both tracks are excellent.
