Product Description


Ever since Boise, Idaho, trio Built to Spill emerged on national radar with its major label release Perfect from Now On (Warner), its earlier recordings are infused with a certain prediscovery mystique. On 1994's There's Nothing Wrong with Love, the roots of Built to Spill's shimmering orchestral arrangements are present, but with a distinctly tattered edge. Frontman Doug Martsch bounds from moody balladry to primal screams, often in the same songs. Add the crunch of Brett Nelson's guitar, and you wipe the sheen off 12 songs that would be just plain pretty, if not for their garage rock soul. --Nick Heil

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome July 26 2008
Format:Audio CD
True or false: Doug Martsch is the Peter Frampton of 1990s indie? Sure, he might not have the hair, the tight pants, or the voice box, but it's difficult to think of another soul more worthy of resident guitar god; maybe J Mascis, but he never brought the pop side like King Framp. That's the side most in evidence on There's Nothing Wrong with Love, before Martsch started bringing the sprawl in spades. Humble, wry song-tales about heads-up-seven-up, Albertson's stir-fry, and Bowie-hating stepdads abound, while earnest tracks like "Twin Falls" and "Big Dipper" set the pace for the entire Northwestern indie-pop scene. Ooo baby I love the way that dark cello elbows its way into the wishlist of "Car", the way Doug's craypaper voice lends a layer of giddiness to the slack romantics of "Reasons", the way the louds and softs of "Some" still pack a wallop. If you feel like I do, you think Perfect is closer to perfect, but there's very little wrong with There's Nothing Wrong with Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't deny this brilliant album March 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
I live in a town (or village) of 800 people, and I only have one other friend that I can even talk about music with. We both got into Built to Spill independantly, but I am far and away the bigger fan, and I believe it's because I own this album and I won't let him borrow it for fear of being without it (to be fair, he usually forgets to return borrowed CDs for weeks or months). When trying to promote the BTS sound, I often describe it as Neil Young on vocals with Jimi Hendrix playing guitar and Bobby Dylan writing the lyrics. Anyway, I didn't get into BTS until Ancient Melodies of the Future, and I bought this because of a magazine recommendation. Like many other reviewers have mentioned, this was almost a life-changing experience for me. It is one of my top three CDs to listen to stoned, along with Led Zepp III and Miles Davis's Kind of Blue. While the whole album is awesome, my favorite tracks are Car, Distopian Dream Girl and Stab. Buy this album and a few copies for your friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful album that will stay with me forever. Feb. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge BTS fan. I have seen them live several times, and I own most all of their albums. This is my first online review--I thought it best to start with the album that has the most personal effect on me.
TNWWL is, in short, a masterpiece. I hate that term--it implies something academic and studied. On the other hand, it conveys the awesome power of this set of songs.
Production--Phil Ek is a mastermind. If you look at his work with BTS and the new Shins album you'll see what I mean. TNWWL is very quiet with minimal studio trickery. There are numerous spots on the album where you will hear vocal mistakes or off-kilter recording levels. Those are part of the genius! The last track ("preview of next BTS album") is hilarious.
Songwriting--Dug is never better than on TNWWL. The songs are mostly intimate and very autobiographical. There is a definite difference between this album and Keep It Like a Secret or Perfect From Now On. Later in his career Dug gets more and more vague. It almost as though he changed songwriting styles. I love PFNO and KILAS, but TNWWL is on a different plane. The song Cleo is amazing--it's told from an unborn baby's perspective. I also love Distopian Dream Girl, Twin Falls, and Car.
Playing--organic and raw. They aren't as loud or as feedback oriented as they would get in subsequent albums...but they rock all the same. I would pay close attention to the acoustic songs and the string arrangements (again--Ek is brilliant!).
Value--there isn't one song on this album I skip over. It's awesome that BTS still plays many of these songs in concert. A friend asked me to recommend a good first album by BTS to buy. I told him Perfect From Now On. That album rocks harder and is more likely to show the musical force behind BTS. I was a little selfish in making this recommendation--I wanted to keep the lyrical beauty and grace of this album to myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eseential BTS That Grows on You June 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
After hearing Built to Spill around my friends' houses for quite a while I decided I should buy some of their albums. My first two were "Keep it Like a Secret" and "There's Nothing Wrong With Love," as I had heard great songs from both. Right off the bat, "Keep it Like a Secret" seemed to be a perfect CD, great for sitting down and listening to actively, but also mellow enough to be great background music for everything. "There's Nothing Wrong With Love" didn't jump out at me at first the way "Keep it Like a Secret" did, but after a bit of listening thoroughly to the entire disc it has grown on me and is now one of my favorites. Bottom line, this is a great CD with very mellow music, great guitar work and catchy lyrics that stick in your mind. Built to Spill is a great band, and this is a great example of their work.
Favorite Tracks: "In the Morning," "Reasons," "Car," and "Distopian Dream Girl"

4.0 out of 5 stars This is only my opinion. Sept. 1 2001
By Narniak
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to believe that BTS could mature this much in only a year. Unlike "Ultimate Alternative Wavers", which was rather harsh and unorganized in all respects, TNWWL attempts to create a dreamy, yet tightly bound atmosphere. At first listen to this record, I got a feeling that I was hearing cliché, lovesick melodies. Somehow, I didn't mind it all that much. After further listening, I realized that the reason I could stand the simple clichés, was because of the countless spine-tingling guitar riffs.
Take "Distopian Dream Girl", for instance. It has that kind of cheesy, "I hate my life" lyrics, yet Dug's wailing guitar, and the band's impeccable melodic timing make their whining lyrics work. Even when Dug says, "But when it came down to your life and mine, I'd do the stupid thing, and let you keep on living." Can somebody explain to me what that is supposed to mean? Instrumental talent and tightness of sound can make the most ridiculous lyrics tolerable. Take many Phish or Dave Mathew's or Moe songs, for example. I'm reluctant to say, but the sheer musical talent of BTS give this record 4 stars. Not all that much going on lyrically.
"I want to see, movies of my dreams", from the song "Car" is the kind of mystifying lyrical quality that this album only hints at. But what if BTS could somehow combine this intrumental genius with lyrics that actually mean something profound to the listener ????? Hold on folks, it's coming soon. Try "Perfect From Now On" or "Keep it Like a Secret".

I love this record. Not haphazord love, but like you would love your favorite teddy bear. It is full of sheer emotion, but avoids being too sappy or too slow. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Much more focused - almost brilliant.
Except for some slower spots, this record, their last independent record, puts it all together for Built to Spill. It's a guitar lovers record, and the songwriting keeps improving. Read more
