Let it be said firstly that I LOVE Built to Spill. Doug Martsch, for me, is one of those quirky musicians that I just connect with. The sonic clutter that he has found on their later albums is for me a wall of sound that sucks me in like an addiction.
Somewhere between Grunge and the Indie Rock of later Built to Spill lies this album. The album is all over the map with tempo changes galore as one would expect from Built to Spill. The ideas on this album, however, aren't fleshed out at the same level of later BTS. Obviously, this is the work of a younger band learning to bounce ideas off one another, and at times it works. At others, however, it's just plain awkward. The acoustic addition at the end of Shameful Dead is one of these moments.
Still, for a BTS fan it's a fun listen to hear how this band developed into what they've become. If it's your first BTS album that you're looking for, however, then turn back to the more mainstream catalog and do yourself a favor by picking up Keep It Like A Secret. It's their most instantly catchy, and if you don't like it, you'll never find yourself tapping your toe to this one.

The Mayor of Music gave me this album at a funeral. I think he was drunk.

HASH(0xaa4db9e4) out of 5 stars It all began with this. Oct. 25 2007
By E. Jankowski - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD is the first cd I bought by BTS many many years ago. I loved and love it. They have changed, however this still holds a great deal of quality. Very lo-fi. On a personal note there are a mere few songs that can bring me to tears. "Hazy" on this album is one of them. After riffs etc with those I've care deeply for, ie those who are more than friends, I have had occasion where I played this and "Hazy" brought be to a pure raw sobbing. HIGHLY recommended.

HASH(0xaa40ff0c) out of 5 stars It's an acquired taste - give it time Sept. 7 2000

Built to Spill ROCKS! These are creeper hooks. The guy who listened once, fast forwarded then returned - big mistake buddy!! The music is more complex than a 1-listen decision. This is like your favorite buds. It creeps up on you, then you are so hooked you can't get it out of your head.

HASH(0xa9f05a5c) out of 5 stars Great Album Jan. 24 2000
By Neal M. Ellis - Published on
I would have to rate this album toward the bottom of my favorites with respect to all of the Built To Spill Albums. It is better than "The Normal Years" and just about ties with "Keep it Like a Secret" the 1999 release. If this is your first Built To Spill purchase, I would recommend either, "Nothing Wrong With Love" and secondly, "Perfect From Now On." "Perfect.." is less accessible than "Nothing.." but a more innovative album all around.

HASH(0xaa40fc9c) out of 5 stars rrrrrrambling Oct. 8 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
the first full length recording by this sometimes one man sometimes band, always amazing artist. Doug Martsch is the master of the macking melody, and if you have any doubts as to the validity of this statement, play a BTS album for your girlfriend and see if she doesn't sigh &her eyes don't get all far-away looking. "the first song" is. "three years today" will make you want to stand up and go back to sleep. The uninitiated will undoubtedly mutter "Dinosaur" comments, but soon, you'll see that J couldn't mack this well if his sex life depended on it. In short, this man knows what he is doing, which is weaving glory, us & soundscapes into my mind's ear for what may as well be the end of time. B T S is on tour as we speak so look for them and go see 'em, they don't move east of Idaho too much anymore.
