1005. Daniel Johnston - Fun

I always 'knew' of Daniel Johnston but hadn't heard his music until M. Ward covered "The Story of an Artist" - then I checked out his documentary. I picked this up just to discover that it was Johnston's studio debut - which means gone was the lo-fi sloppiness, filled with pure eagerness and earnestness... instead what we have, despite good intentions, is studio musicians playing perfectly... sort of like when Bob Dylan sang on "We are the World".

3 out of 10

Here's a clip of M. Ward covering Daniel (this visual sucks but audio is decent):
