Product Description


Recorded mildly better than his debut (Roman Candle on Cavity Search), the self-titled second solo album is one of the most understated and incredible albums to emerge from the indie-rock scene in the 1990s. With his nimble picking fingers behind him, Smith writes sad, little songs about drugs and romantic codependence that border on the obsessed. "Needle in the Hay" and "The White Lady Loves You More" are exemplary tunes that fuse the Beatles' pop sense with Neil Young's sense of doom. Lying in his own burned out basement, Smith can rough up the gentlest love song with a few salty words of choice. --Rob O'Connor

5.0 out of 5 stars the most private album i've ever heard May 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
it really is like elliott is playing just for you. on this album in particular, smith's voice is so warm and affecting you feel him holding your hand and so cool and hurt you WANT to hold his hand.
i love this record. i have for sometime. elliott smith was a fine musician and, from what i understand, a very fine, though lonely, person. either/or is his masterpiece, but every recording of his is something you want to hold on to as all your own. you'll love it with a ridiculous passion.
sleep well, elliott, your listeners miss you dearly.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential elliott smith album March 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is probably elliott at his rawest best. Songs about alcohol binges, self-hate, doomed relationships, and drug addiction that all manage to be darkly beautiful, and sometimes even pop-music catchy. With just his guitar, his harmonizing vocals, and occasionally a guitar or organ overdub, this album is an outpouring of honesty and emotion that is unparalleled in 90s music.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Needle in The Hay" and its effect Nov. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
I heard "Needle in the Hay" on the radio, just after a tire exploded, driving home one night... I got home and just lost it. My head exploded, the melody and words racing through my mind, my wife asking me repeatedly what was wrong, screaming, running around throw a chair, outside in my underpants in the cold just waiting, trying to calm down.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant Nov. 1 2003
By James
Format:Audio CD
there is no one more brilliant yet less recognized in music than elliott smith. every one of his albums has touched me deeply. before his death i had never cried at the news of a celebrity's death.......but that day I felt like i had lost a great friend. i had many opportunities to see him perform while i was living in portland...unfortunately i was always too busy. he's the one rose i wish i had stopped to smell. for anyone not familiar with elliott, take a close listen.... he'll tear your heart out, stomp all over it, squeeze every last bit of blood from it, and hand it back to you - and when you get it back, you'll be so thankful for the experience. Elliott, you were an amazing and uncommonly beautiful person....thanks for sharing your soul with us. see you soon, buddy.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Music lives on Oct. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
I just read about Elliotts passing. Its a shame to lose such a talented musician at such a young age. Every single album he did was brilliant, and they deserved more recognition than what they were given. But for those of us who discovered how incredible Elliott was, we shall never forget what he brought into our lives. Even though his music and mannerisms were quiet and reserved, he still shined so brightly. I'm gonna miss the feeling i got from hearing a new album or song by him. Rest in peace Elliott. You will be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I hope he's found a better place... Oct. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't really know how to express how I'm feeling right now, but I wanted to share my feelings with others who appreciate Elliot Smith, and let those who will discover him now, when he's gone, know that his music has touched lives.
I wish Elliot could have known how much his music means to us, but maybe that would not have changed things anyway. All I know is that the world is a colder, sadder place without his voice, and I for one, will be playing this album tonight, hoping that he is at peace now.
