5.0 out of 5 stars Elliott smith delivers beautifully for the final time, 27 Sep 2004
This review is from: From A Basement On The Hill (Audio CD)
I always hate the idea of downloading an album before it is even released. But when I discovered I could download the last elliott smith album this way, I couldn't resist. And since doing so I have been listening to it constantly. This album is full of contrasts. It has some of his most beautiful melodic whispering gentle songs, and it has the hardest rockers he has ever recorded. Those looking for signs of his pending suicide in his lyrics, don't. This is Elliott Smith remember, and every album he has ever released talks of suicide etc.. I love this album, I really do, and I can't help but feel close to tears at certain moments in it. I won't talk about the songs seperately, they are for you to get what you need from, but as a whole, this is up here in his second tier of excellent albums, with XO, Roman Candle and Figure 8. I honestly don't believe he could ever have surpassed the masterpiece that is Either/Or, but this album has a space of its own, and its very high up. God bless you Elliott.
