An amazing discography. I was really, really into him in high school, into every single album he put out as well as New Moon. The top three are definitely Either/Or, XO, and his self-titled. Hard for me to choose an order.

I have Basement on a Hill and I like it well enough but it does not tell me why this guy is somewhat legendary. So this list shows me what else I might investigate. Thanks again BEA!

Really talented songwriter, very honest, but a bit depressing for constant listening.

Not one bad song, I used to listen to him a lot back a year ago. They're coming out with a 'best of' album that looks pretty good.
