Wonderful debut album by Belle & Sebastian, it has a little influence from a couple of other favourite debuts of mine - Velvet Underground & Nico and The Smiths.

Che bellezza e che delicatezza aveva questo esordio dei Belle and Sebastian, pur ancora grezzo e fragile al confronto del loro terzo e perfetto disco.

This album should be higher ranked...

No, seriously, this is not that worse than IYFS. I love it.

Debut album from one Britain's greatest bands. Belle and Sebastian write lovely songs with beautiful melodies and great lyrics. Tigermilk, is the first of many fine records by this great band. The state I am in, my wandering days are over, and, we rule the school, are just three standouts on an album full of them. Not B&S's best, but still great.

I don't think I'll ever again like this album as much as I did 15 years ago, and I'll certainly never get any deeper into B&S, but I wouldn't complain if someone threw this on as background music.

Notch above "If You're Feeling Sinister" for me. "State I Am In" just immerses and locks you into the album.

While I don't like the mellow acoustic style of bands like Belle and Sebastian all that much, I can appreciate If You're Feeling Sinister to a certain extent. Tigermilk still has the fantastic lyrics that Belle and Sebastian have no problem bringing to the table, but it honestly is just too laid back for me. I could easily fall asleep to this nightly. I don't mean that pejoratively, it's just a bit too relaxing for me. Honestly, though, if they had released Sinister and Tigermilk as a double LP with a different arrangement of songs, it might have made for a fantastic experience. Belle and Sebastian are incredibly consistent, I can admit that.
