I've been experimenting listening to the music late at night on my iphone with my headsets without any noise surrounding me... and it's quite interesting because you can hear everything, from flickering of the guitar to the painful sound of the singer's voice.  It's soulful and tranquil.  I know strange since I live in the city and  you almost always have your headsets on listening to music, but during the day the noise from everyone and everything interrupt your thoughts, you get distracted from the song.  It's been a while since I let the music carry me away.  

These are rather depressing songs, but they are so beautifully written and performed.
