A tricky one...
...but this album just reminded me why I love music. It cuts deep.
I just dont know. I - ... ya I just dont know. There is no reference point for anything like this. Daniel skipped the music part of music and jumped right to the message and the emotion.
Fractured and hard to listen to. I wouldn't have it any other way.
A brilliant, raw tear-jerker of an album by the schizophrenic king of lo-fi music and imo the best Daniel Johnston album
This is so lo-fi it's probably better to call it 'no-fi'. You can hear background noise while DJ crudely plays and even more crudely sings. Strangely, it works somewhat, and isn't as terrible as that combination implies.
Absolute quality. Johnstons a genius at work and this his best work of all.
While you were busy painting your masterpiece, a five year old sat down with some crayons and made something far more creative and emotional than your work can ever become.
It starts off pretty strong (Devil Town is an amazing opener) but then it just goes downhill. Some of it (like Funeral Home) is just fucking dreck.
Has its moments, te album is patchy a mix of well produced and lo-fi songs, worth it for Devil Town and Some Things...
extraordinary lyrics as always, streight from an open wound. Bad Beatles cover
The best album from the very prolific 'inventor' of lo-fi, 1990 can make for painful listening - particularly on Careless Soul when Daniel sounds likes he's going into meltdown. Daniel's compositions display a purity and a beauty that outshines all of the studio trickery on hand to his more successfull peers. Seek it out but it might just break your heart.
