The best album of all time? I'm drunk, but it's got to be...
that line put me off of Neutral Milk Hotel for 4months before I realised he wasnt a preaching bastard :)
hate this album. Really.
but it is amazing. Not my favourite but a classic no doubt.
that I never really think of as one of my favourites, but whenever I go back to it, it always sounds incredible.
One guy came in, heard him wail "I love you Jesus Christ!", and then stormed out in a huff shouting "I hope he's being ironic!"
He was weird.
But yes, possibly the greatest album of all time.
If you get the Jeff Mangum solo album (live at jittery joe's) he explains a bit about how he intended this to be a more all encompassing spirituality type message real. He mumbles a fair bit.
It's a great live album (and I can't count many of them to be honest)
You can almost hear the poor man's mind creaking under the strain.
but I'm sure I've seen at least 5,675,734,464 threads about how ITAOTS is the BEST ALBUM EVAR in the three months I've been here. There are other bands out there, you know...
But none of them have released albums that are as good (in my opinion).
"I love You, Jesus Christ!"
Like, "I love you, fuck!"
I've tried. It will never happen. Much like aubergine.
