Sparklehorse was basically the one man operation of Mark Linkous who may have delivered the most introspective and morose songs of recent memory. The music of Sparklehorse was laden with antidepressants and internal conflict, yet there was a hypnotic beauty to the music. To the shock of few, Linkous committed suicide like so many in Rock has. It is possible that one day the music of Sparklehorse will become more celebrated than on college radio. It took Nick Drake decades to really become honored in the music world. The same could happen here, if it ever happens at all.
