Third Album Reissued On 180g Vinyl LP!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 216/500!
Blessed with the voice of a wispy angel, Elliott Smith created sad little pop songs, which, like the work of Nick Drake (to whom he's been compared) threaten to disappear into the night air.
Smith's third album, Either/Or, was produced by himself, Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf and released February 25, 1997. The critically acclaimed album features two singles, "Speed Trials" and "Ballad Of Big Nothing". Heart sewn firmly to his sleeve, Elliott continued his tuneful dissection of life and what makes it difficult.
Elliott Smith had ambitions to make records with a Beatlesque sound - but zero interest in Beatlesque fame - when he recorded Either/Or. While he achieved his dreams on several subsequent major-label releases, the Portland, Oregon, indie-folk singer-songwriter's third album resonates because of his low-fi whisper and gritty, sepia-toned lyrics. His songs struck a nerve well beyond the Northwest music scene - Madonna, of all people, covered the morosely pretty drunk's lullaby 'Between the Bars.'
