just want to know thoughts
it just is
where shall i go next?
Not one track I don't like. Alphabet Town is lovely.
XO, just for the two Waltz tracks alone.
I prefer the low-key albums.
If it wasn't posthumous I'd have to say New Moon though.
I know I'm in a minority here.
If pushed I'd then go for Figure 8, Either/Or then XO in second, third and fourth and self-titled fifth. I've actually never heard Roman Candle for some reason.
Which you probably know allready. I love them all though... so any ones a good place to start.
...with Bamnan, New Moon is very, very special
is my fave.
although I've been enjoying xo a lot recently.
bar the self-titled album. It's merely very good. The rest is all sprinkled with absolute genius.
or from a basement...? I don't see how either of them are that great. from a basement... could have been if he'd finished it himself though
It's all shiny and clean, almost optimistic in places. Some of the harmonies on there are fantastic. I can understand why it's not loved though.
As for From A Basement, it's one of those epic sprawling things that completely exhaust you, but are worth the hour or so. Admittedly, the context pushes it up an extra few notches on the 'heartbreak' scale, but that makes it all the better for me, in a morbid sorta way. Admittedly though, I haven't listened all the way through in a long time.
He's not made a record that's any less very, very good though.
