Customer Review

on 5 January 2002
This was the first BTS album I bought having heard a track of theirs (Twin Falls-not on this album) covered by Ben Folds Five.
Quite simply, this album is brilliant and provided the soundtrack to my summer, one of the few albums that's been able to lodge itself in my CD player.
Doug Martsch sounds a little like Neil Young but for the MTV generation and his layers of guitars lend a really great 'rock' sound to the entire album. Lyrically, the songs can be quite obtuse but somehow Martsch seems to lend the greatest emotional resonance to otherwise fathomless lyrics. Not that the lyrics are bad, in many places they're great and overall resemble poetry more than song lyrics.
If you like Neil Young, Grandaddy, Radiohead, The Flaming Lips or other bands tha are similar you could do much worse than buying this album, or indeed any of theirs although I personally feel that the newer ones are better.
