Elliott Smith

[/ QUOTE ]

I think you need at least one of Sufjan/Elliot/Iron and Wine, but probably not more than one.

Any sort of consensus on this? Illinois was on my preliminary list, but I really really love either/or.

[/ QUOTE ]

All 3 of those bands/artists IMO. Sufjan is pretty different to the other two due to his production and instrumentation. I guess if you had to choose between Elliot and Iron and Wine, go w/ Elliot - he was the progenitor of much of this genre as it is.

Edit: and the poor bastard's dead by self-inflicted knife in the heart. +10 points

I think XO is far better than Either/Or and better than anything Beam has ever done but not better than Illinois.

These are two that I would have a really really hard time leaving off.


Also... given what I know of your tastes, Im surprised to not see Mr. Smith on there. What gives?

You caught me before I edited it. I got to 12 and stopped and then realized that I left off Smith (and a million other albums).
