Elliott Smith – XO



Elliott Smith


Eben though a few of the song lyrics seem a little more upbeat, and the instrumentation definitely sounds happier (than previous efforts), you still get the feel that things are shiny in Elliott’s life.  XO is a decent album, but no higher than an “average Elliott Smith release” for me.  Still, an average Elliott LP is better than most of the stuff out there.

Grade: B-

Favorite Track: Waltz #2 (XO)

Second Favorite: Baby Britain
