The Ugly Organ, released in 2003, is the fourth studio album by the American band Cursive. It is a concept album that follows a story of lust, love, and empty sex throughout the "Ugly Organist's" life. The album was a critical success with a 85% Metascore based on 15 critics reviews creating "Universal Acclaim". Entertainment Weekly said this of the album, "Organ raises the Saddle Creek bar in terms of sheer psychiatric-rock intensity". Billboard called it a "challenging, yet highly rewarding listen". Rolling Stone referred to it as a "brilliant leap forward".
The album reaches an emotional peak on the last track, and the Ugly Organist exclaims that he is staying alive, amidst the cheating, murder, and depression expressed during the album.
This album is the 51st release of Saddle Creek Records. It was released both on black and translucent green 180 gram vinyl.
