They're pretty much amazing. In the Aeroplane Under The Sea is an amazing album.

Original and enjoyable. NMH is pretty difficult to describe, so I'd suggest snatching one of their many mp3's they have floating around (i.e. "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" or "Holland 1945").

They're a really good band that I've heard too little from. I've never picked up In an Aeroplane Over the Sea and I really should.

In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is absolutely amazing. I can't get enough of it. I haven't listened to much of their other stuff, but "Song Against Sex" is also excellent.

"communist daughter" is their best song despite being so short.

"Oh Comely" = best NMH song I've heard.

Just because the freaking lyrics are so beautiful.

That entire album is perfect. Not a single bad song on it. I've heard a few songs off of Avery Island and they're really good too.

that ones ok, submarine over the sky is better.
on a more serious note, aeroplane is the only one i have, and its cool. i havent spent enough time with. folk and noise is a clever combo. (and then a horns section! these guys are crazy!)

I think In the Aeroplane Under The Sea is kinda overrated, but I still like it.

My favourite track would probably be The King of Carrot Flowers part 1.

I have two of their albums. Anybody else wondering how people on an indie forum not know who Neutral Milk Hotel is? WTF? Two-Headed Boy is their best, by the way.

In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is definately one of the greatest albums ever. Every song is great, my favorites are the title track, two headed boy, and communist daughter.

neutral milk hotel is only one of the most influential indie bands ever. when are we going to start discussing more contemporary artists? everything is always old, old, old, old, old, old news.

In the Aeroplane.. is absolutely one of my favs. Just started listening to Avery Island and I think I'll be able to appreciate that one to after some practice

I'd best describe Neutral Milk Hotel as a punk-folk band drawing heavily from both spectrums. In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is a magnificent album full of acoustic strumming, nostalgic lyrics, and a concept based upon the diary of Anne Frank. Seriously, it's amazing.
