I have it downloaded, but it hasn't really sunk in yet, as I've only listened to it whilst doing other things on the computer. I'll probably buy a copy sometime soon. PS - Good review Andrew.

Stand out tracks:

Twilight
Strung Out Again
King's Crossing
Pretty (Ugly Before)
Let's Get Lost
Memory Lane

Pretty much all of it. Such a good way to go out. It's the best Elliott Smith album I own (I've got XO, Figure 8 and FABOTH).

Anyone wanna bet on when the b-sides and rarities album will come out? I say mid-late 2005.

P.S It's an alt/indie box social.

I like Roman Candle and the S/T a little bit more, but I say this beats out Either/Or, XO and Figure 8.

Q said it's his best album.

Once my PC is re-booted, I'll get this properly.

I still say Either/Or is the best, but hey, different strokes.

IHUN, it's "we're" and Kaden isn't a regular. He's just a visitor there. He is not permanent.

I think Twilight is a good song...but not as genius as people make it out to be. "King's Crossing" and "Pretty (Ugly Before)" are way better in my opinion.

It's a solid album...like all his other stuff...but it's not otherworldly in my opinion.

"A Passing Feeling" is also an amazing song...the acoustic guitars are so highly tunes that they sound almost like harps.

He still made one of the best Elliott related threads we've ever had though :D

It's just Tapeworm and I trying to be witty by quoting from The Postal Service's "District Sleeps Alone Tonight" and welcoming you in. We love you.
