In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is oftimes discarded as purely an elitist circlejerk due to a handful of overzealous online critics. For this reason, there's a backlash trend to deem the album overrated. And that's a shame.

ITAOTS is perhaps the most hauntingly beautiful album in existence. Mangum's voice is not gold, but fresh honey, pouring heartbreakingly surreal lyrics seamlessly against the backdrop of ethereal singing saws and grand orchestration.

A unique effort and totally worth the hype, Mangum churns out late 90s American indie's pièce de résistance

Neutral Milk Hotel have an album here with interesting themes, such as love and death in WW2.

Initially I didn't understand this album, when I felt the whole background and looked at the translations of the songs in my own language, I listened again and really got into it. If we look at this album with Arcade Fire's Funeral, I think that this album deserves more, it will never be overrated, it is a pure underground, but with a special sincerity and warmth, I listen to it five times in a row and it never gets bored, unlike Funeral for example
Great opening and ending, and it gets fully complicated record!

God, Jeff Mangum's is my crush or something'cause i really like everything he touches.
Well If someone would ask me what was your favorite folk album I would said It was this and If someone asked me what was my favorite album that is certainly not folk I would also say It is this. Can you get me? I don't think so.
This album is and It isn't, It is beatiful and It isn't, because sometimes It is creepy, It is good and sometimes It isn't beacause sometimes It is just brilliant.
Alright, enough of this nonsense, speaking of nonsense, nonsense is the most spoken word to define this album by the "unbelievers", the people that don't get this album, well I never was one of those people, and calling this nonsense being also a Bob Dylan fan is kind of strange, have you heard "Ballad of a Thing Men", THAT is strange to me. Well going back to Neutral Milk Hotel, I always liked their style since I first heard "King of Carrots pt.1" and "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea", like It instantly became one of my favorite songs of all time, but, for some reason It took me a lot of time to actually hear the album, and when I heard It, well, It instantly became one of my favorite álbuns of all time.
