From AskGreni
Master lyricist, songwriter and one of the most pleasing vocals in all of indie/rock or whatever you’d classify Smith as. He’s easily my favourite solo artist of all time, and every album he has could be considered one of the best of all time. Rest in peace, Elliott. XO

Rediscovered thanks to BEA. A sublime talent that pulls at the emotions.

Does anyone else think he listened to a bunch of Big Star as a kid?

An amazing discography. I was really, really into him in high school, into every single album he put out as well as New Moon. The top three are definitely Either/Or, XO, and his self-titled. Hard for me to choose an order.

I have Basement on a Hill and I like it well enough but it does not tell me why this guy is somewhat legendary. So this list shows me what else I might investigate. Thanks again BEA!
