Elliott Smith is arguably the best alternative acoustic solo artist of the last 10 years.
He has always worn his influences on his sleeve; Beatlesque melodies with Arlo Guthrie fingerpicking and Nick Drake lyrics. On this album, his idiosyncratic guitar picking is well served by its low-fi production. The songs are full of subtle chord changes with haunting and frail vocals.
In many ways, this can be seen as his ‘perfect imperfect’ album, before his production values became more hi-fi and his arrangements more expansive and melodically complex.
