Yeah, still need to hear the b-sides album and s/t. I had the chance to buy it at the record store about a month ago, but i had already spent all muh money. But I got XO so i was happy. haha
It was 15 dollars though, which kind of annoyed me, seeing how old it is. Oh well, damn hipster stores. But still, worth every penny, as cliche as that sounds.

after listening to a few songs off each album, I think I like later Elliot better than earlier, but the songs I heard of Roman Candle destroyed everything else. But the s/t song or two I Heard did nothing for me

the best songs imo from his s/t are "the white lady loves you more" and "the biggest lie"

songs like "needle in the hay" (critically speaking, probably the most popular from his self-titled) seemed sorta...randomly composed with just guitar strokes and chords "put together" but then i sort of started to "get it"--the song just fell into place

I remember when I listened to this album nonstop for about a month. I like the vocals on this more than any of his other works.

I don't understand why No Name #3 gets no love, it's one of my favourite Elliott Smith songs.

I still haven't listened to No Name 1-4 enough to comment on them but No Name #5 is one of my favorite songs by him.

This is the album that initially made me fall in love with Elliott's music though. Love this thing to pieces.
