Reseña de álbum

Perhaps best likened to a marching band on an acid trip, Neutral Milk Hotel's second album is another quixotic sonic parade; lo-fi yet lush, impenetrable yet wholly accessible, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is either the work of a genius or an utter crackpot, with the truth probably falling somewhere in between. Again teaming with producer Robert Schneider, Jeff Mangum invests the material here with new maturity and clarity; while the songs run continuously together, as they did on the previous On Avery Island, there is a much clearer sense of shifting dynamics from track to track, with a greater emphasis on structure and texture. Mangum's vocals are far more emotive as well; whether caught in the rush of spiritual epiphany ("The King of Carrot Flowers Pts. Two and Three") or in the grip of sexual anxiety ("Two-Headed Boy"), he sings with a new fervor, composed in equal measure of ecstasy and anguish. However, as his musical concepts continue to come into sharper focus, one hopes his stream-of-consciousness lyrical ideas soon begin to do the same; while Mangum spins his words with the rapid-fire intensity of a young Dylan, the songs are far too cryptic and abstract to fully sink in — In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is undoubtedly a major statement, but just what it's saying is anyone's guess.

Believe the hype

I owned this album for 6 months without liking it. It sat in the glove compartment of my truck, collecting dust and reading road maps presumably. Maybe it was Jeff Mangum's voice, which upon first listen sounded like a cross between nails on a chalkboard and my roomate's garbled singing in the shower. Maybe it was the weather, early summer in the mountains of North Carolina; far too nice to be devoting time to music that seemed difficult. But as chance would have it, the weather changed and grew cold, gray. I had a long drive from town up to my house, and under that winter sky one day I put it in. Instant gratification. As I wound through curvy steep roads, I also wound through a myriad of emotions. This album, filled with wonderous intense music, had been playing coy in my glove compartment all along, and was now opening up to me. I can't describe the album any better than it already has been by others. It is what it is; passionate and purposeful, vague memories and moments of clarity, stories and confessions. It never loses focus, it never loses touch. And 5 years later, it still gets better each listen.

My Favorite Album of All Time

Let me just say this... this is the only album I've heard that has actually made me cry, weeping like a child because it is so radiantly gorgeous, awe-inspiring. His music is so starkly beautiful, so rich and gripping and involving.. it is one of the few albums I have which I would rather unplug the phone than have interrupted. This album is such a vulnerable, incredibly powerful and melodically brilliant it deserves the highest respect of anyone who truly loves music. I cannot imagine topping it or improving it in any way. Utterly fascinating.

Destroys. Moves. Pleases.

I don't know if words in the english language describe this masterpiece.

The self-described "fuzz-folk" project Neutral Milk Hotel was one of the primary outgrowths of the Elephant 6 Recording Company collective, a coterie of like-minded lo-fi indie groups — including the Apples in Stereo, the Olivia Tremor Control, and Secret Square — who shared musicians, ideas, and sensibilities. While ranging in sound and concept from solo acoustic work to full-band performances, Neutral Milk Hotel essentially remained the work of Jeff Mangum, a singer/songwriter from...
