This is very powerful for me, as strong as an statement as In the Aeroplane Over The Sea. It is quite understandable why this album is often overlooked, It is especially lo-fi in some parts, what almost makes a bunch of noise in the first listen, but It is exactly this mess that I Fell in love with. It reminds me of Car Seat Headrest.

Although it's not a very good album (the compositions are average), On Avery Island lays the foundation for the great In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.

Really a great album. Shows what NMH are capable of. Standouts for me are Gardenhead and Naomi. Three Peaches is a low light that leaves the gap between the two with something to be desired. I'm not sure how I feel about the instrumental.

Great album...quite different from Aeroplane and enjoyable, perhaps feels like there are some tracks on here that are filling in, but more quality than not.

Nothing average about this music. Even if he hadn't made the followup, Jeff Mangum would be well-loved for this alone. Much more than mere foreshadowing of greatness.

Very underrated album. Not quite ITAOTS but it's powerful nonetheless. Love the lo-fi sound! "Three Peaches" was my favorite track.
