This review is from: From A Basement On The Hill (Audio CD)
Buy this album whilst the great public carries on with their life, head in the clouds unaware of the sheer beauty that was Elliott Smith. Its a rewarding album with great melody that pays repeat listening. Not only are the songs brillantly crafted but the lyrics are fantastic too. The music often has a beautiful but fragile quality to it. I was lucky enough to see him live once and he seemed to be an incredibly humble gentle good person. This reflects in his album(s) - the beauty of "From a basement.." really touches you. This is a priceless album in these days of so many egotistical fame grabbing pretenders and their vast entourages. This abum is the antithesis of that. It is awe inspiring.
