„Throughout Sun Kil Moon’s „Benji“ his family and friends take starring roles. The opening track, the hauntingly beautiful ‚Carissa‘, tells the tale of his second cousin who died in a fire at the age of 35. He struggles to remember her and puzzles over her death, whilst yearning to return home and see all her relations, and vows to „sing her name across every sea.“ The music fits perfectly with the story, a heartbreakingly sad arrangement of voice and acoustic guitar, only embellished by Will Oldham’s poignant background vocal.“ (source: 405)
