5.0 out of 5 stars
My best find for a long time., 19 May 2005
I haven't written any reviews before on Amazon but this album is so great I want to encourage anybody who has arrived at this page to buy this album .... NOW.
I stumbled across this page whilst browsing through Amazon and bought it on the strength of the short samples and good reviews. I was hooked from the moment I put it in my c.d player.
Jeff Mangum has made a truly amazing album from start to finish. Each song has fantastic lyrics delivered by Mangum with his perfect singing style. He is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished singer / songwriters I have heard for a long time.
It's so hard to describe in words just why this album is so good. The bouncing quick lyrics that fit so perfectly, catchy and melodious acoustic guitars on one track followed by quick lo-fi sounding guitar rock on the next. The lyrics on each song fit so well and make me just want to hear them over and over again. I could go on for a lot longer but I would advise you to buy this and find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
I am looking forward to receiving my copy of On Avery Island which I ordered soon after hearing In The Aeroplane over the sea.
I give this album 5/5 without hesitation. I am just disappointed it has been out for 7 years and I have missed out for this long.
