This is the tinderbox to the fantastical fire that is Black Sheep Boy, the much anticipated full-length record by Okkervil River, coming out in April 2005. The first track, "For Real", is from the full-length record. The second track, "The Next Four Months", is previously unreleased. And the third track, "For the Enemy (Live)", is a very special recorded glimpse of Okkervil River performing live.

"Singer-songwriter Will Sheff...is ready for worldwide renown. His ambitious melancholy on Down the River of Golden Dreams...would be impressive enough with just soft strum and Sheff's vaporous tenor. But Okkervil River aspire to bigger cinema." - David Fricke, Rolling Stone

Magnet called Down the River of Golden Dreams the eighth best record of 2003, commenting, "We will float until we learn how to swim. Yes, that's an In the Aeroplane Over the Sea reference, and yes, Okkervil River has that sort of mythical genius."

"Singing with both the raw-throated urgency of Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and the melancholic intimacy of Will Oldham, Sheff's first-person narratives create a world full of regrets, lost loves and broken hearts...Quality song-writing and storytelling...bittersweet poignancy." - Andrew Carden, MOJO
