Damn, if you listen to Neutral Milk Hotel or The Velvet Underground & Nico after this, they seem like top notch modern pop production audio quality in comparison.

Joking aside, I enjoyed this quite a lot. Low-Fi to its truest level possible. Sweet melodic guitar chords accompany very captivating story telling, and you don't need anything else. That's the beauty that this album holds. However, upon reaching the last few tracks, the style does get a little worn out.

One of those albums that you will feel nostalgic about even if you've never heard it before.

Considering that this a strictly lo-fi piece you can't help but admire its enormity. So much confessed, so many stories told.

This album is proof of Darnielle's lyrical talent. With extremely poor sound quality, simple song structures, a voice that won't appeal to all and a mess of a concept, the album still stands up as completely amazing due almost entirely in part to the lyrics.

Personal thought only, but with the increase in fidelity and complexity of song structure (probably also including an improvement in vocal perfomance) in later albums, a great deal of intimacy was lost.
