Reseña de álbum

Elliott Smith's tragic death in 2003 left a gaping wound in the indie rock community. There weren’t many singer/songwriter/producers around who could make music so raw and honest, so personal and universal, that it could touch you no matter how it was presented. Just Smith and a four-track in his bedroom or sitting behind the piano at Abbey Road, it didn’t matter. His songs meant a lot to a lot of people and his records have become treasured parts of people’s lives. This collection gathers up songs from throughout his career, taking tracks from each of Smith's albums and the two posthumous compilations that were released. The songs are extremely well chosen and give a glimpse of Smith both as a harrowingly honest writer and an amazingly gifted creator of memorable pop songs. It’s a fine starting point for someone looking to discover Smith, but even if you have all his albums, it serves as a greatest-hits collection of sorts and only confirms just how awful not having him here truly is.

Why?

I am a huge fan of smith but an introductory album is just rediculous. If I were to make an introductory album for him, and I wouldn't, I would have selected a very different set of songs. Honestly, if you want to get into this amazing artist you would be much better off getting any of his cd's.

Great Songs, Bad Album

If Elliot Smith was good at anything, it was composing a collection of songs that fit together perfectly. These are all excellent songs, but they do not tell a story when mashed together like From the Basement on a Hill or his self-titled album does. Pick up one of those instead of this.

Serves its purpose

And I would like to encourage anyone who is unfamiliar to pick this up first. You'll have no problem getting into the rest of his work. R.I.P. <3
