I can't bring myself to love this album but I sure do love Say Yes. I'm too optimistic for these tracks
Can't help compare this to songs: ohia - magnolia electric co. Both records make me feel similar. Both in my overall. The rest is obvious. I also saw both live and enjoyed both shows but it was years later down the line before I fully appreciated how these records would resonate with me.
P.s Suicide in not exit
Nice album! It's one of the most quiet folk albums that I heard. Not my taste, but music is really cool. I sure I will listen to this album again but when I will fall asleep.
Also when you stay in depression, listen to the lyrics of Say Yes, it gets help. I sure I change the rating)))
I wish I liked this album more but I didn't. I, personally, don't find Elliott's voice too appealing. I tried to get into the lyrics but the album couldn't overcome this hurdle for me. That's not to say the lyrics aren't insightful and thought-provoking, because they are, it's just saying that I like hearing voices that I like and I didn't find one on this album. His voice isn't bad my any means, it's just nothing special to me. An album with such little instrumentation needs what is present to be of the highest quality if you ask me. I thought the guitar melodies were creative enough and the more layered songs were interesting. I didn't dislike any songs but I didn't love any either.
A friend recommended Elliott Smith to me and I started with his debut album which I really liked, but this surpasses that. More happening here although the lyrics are still as dark.
Favorite Songs: "Say Yes", "Between the Bars", "Ballad of Big Nothing"
How this man made simple guitar music so beautiful is one of the modern age’s greatest mysteries...
I would love this record to get into the top 100 eventually. It certainly deserves it.
Elliott Smith has to be one of the best modern acoustic guitar acts of all time. His music has touched so many people on such a deep level he could easily be ranked much higher.
That being said, if I hadn't got into him at such a young age I probably wouldn't enjoy him as much - you have to emotionally connect to it to truly appreciate and feel how natural his music is.
