967. Elliot Smith - XO

XO was Elliot's first release for a major label and it shows from the cover artwork to the sound inside... with a greater budget I assume, Smith was able to hang around in the studio a bit longer and breathe a fuller life into all the melodies in his head. While it isn't as intimate as either/or, XO is filthy rich in melodies and heartache.

9.8 out of 10

I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
