There’s definitely something strange about listening to a new record from someone who you greatly admire yet recently killed himself. “From A Basement On The Hill” certainly leaves an emotional mark as the late Elliott Smith furthers his exploration of song-writing over delicate tales of misery, jealousy, drugs, love, and notoriety. Tracks such as “Let’s Get Lost” and “A Fond Farewell” are instant gems that could only be crafted with such delicacy from the talent consumed by our late indie rock hero.
Mr. Smith, you might be gone but never forgotten.
