I had an ex who used to listen to them all the time. They're pretty good but for a listen but nothing more than that.

The Decemberists covered "Communist Daughter" when I saw them. Just saying. The Decemberists take a lot of pages from the NMH playbook.

not to be an indie snob, (well, actually, yes I am) but their rarities and unreleased songs are their very best. There are 3 essential ones:

"My Dreamgirl Don't Exist"
"Engine"
"Glue" (originally by the gerbils)

and some more awesome ones:
"Little Birds" (live, never released)
"Love you more than life"
"sailing through"
"everything is"

I think this stuff totally eclipses their admittedly stellar albums.

yeah jeff mangum and this band are awesome. mangum also did a live show which was released on cd titled live at jittery joes. it is all neutral milk songs and is really worth listening to if you are a fan. check out a live video of the band playing song against sex on you tube...man they are great.

Neutral Milk Hotels Amazin I love them theyre lyrics in "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" are amazing. like Holland 1945 "The only girl ive ever loved was born with roses in her eyes but then they buried her alive one evening nineteen fourty five." thats not just music, it's poetry.

ITAOTS is one of my favourite albums ever.

What I never understood was why people complain about Mangum's voice. It's one of the most passionate and beautiful voices in music. NMH is all about his voice, and without it, the songs lose all their magic. Like that Mountain Goats cover of Two-headed boy(I think). Nobody should ever cover that song.

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is one of the saddest albums I've ever heard, in a good, brilliant way. One of my fav albums of all time.

what an album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is. the lyrics, especially those of the title track, are just unbelievably good. they are so cathartic and honest and oh, just pretty incredible in general.

Aeroplane is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard in my life. Jeff Mangum is one of the best lyricists ever.
