Wakey Wakey…Elliott Smith's here
OH HE'S GOOD!!! He's been waking me up every morning with this corker of an album…the lovely acoustic intro in 'son of Sam' is perfect for a nice gentle wake up, and keeps you interested enough so you don't fall back asleep. My favourite track is number 4 -Everything Reminds Me of Her, brilliant…just brilliant.
Undoubtedly one of the obvious songwriting talents of the modern era, his combintion of instruments and his husky yet melodic vocals combine an interesting blend of everything I like about music. He's the reason I picked up a guitar and his untimely suicide earlier this year was tragic.
Check him out.
