    Do you like the 1975 or Tokyo Police Club?

    Pretty much the soundtrack to an entire semester in college.....and one I still listen to probably monthly 13 years later.

    listened to Either/Or for the first time today – another stunner! I don't know much about Elliot Smith but he kinda gave me a low-fi Beatles vibe? if that's possible?

    He has a few Beatles covers that are worth checking out

    him and Brion were two of the more prominent beatles-heads of that era I feel like

    updated the list through page 10. some shakeups in the last few lists. hounds of love is no longer #2. I'll leave it at that for now.

    I have a strange appreciation for Elliot Smith in that I think Either/Or is absolutely phenomenal and yet none of his other albums do anything for me at all.
    I do like a few individual songs (Waltz, Miss Misery, Needle in the Hay).

    Figure 8 is his best album but you can’t find a bad one.

    I definitely hear a lot of Beatles in the sort of “orchestral” playing on Elliott’s records. He creates a depth of sound that is a lot like John/Paul’s songwriting.

    Heatmiser is great too. Need to shout out Jimmy Eat World for name dropping them in “Kill” and lead me on the path to dive into Elliott Smith’s discography.

    I like Either/Or significantly more than the others, of which I like neither/nor

    “Los Angeles”, “Junk Bond Trader”, “Everything Reminds Me of Her”? None of those are good?

    Tangential, but this post made me think of it:

    Have you heard Live at the Star Club, Hamburg? Given how much of your 50 is driven by raucous energy and ferocity, I feel like it’d be right up your alley.

    I never really got Jerry Lee Lewis until I listened.
