The drumming on the whole album is really spectacular.

Stellar, I've come to the conclusion that you have some kind of personal vendetta against Lacey because he's turning the indie scene whores who drool all over him onto the bands you love.



I have no problem with anyone turning people onto bands that I love, it's just that he seems to be doing it in this way that...I can't describe. He has this smug attitude about it, like it's his worldwide plan to do it. To me, it's as bad as Fred Durst being photoed wearing a Smiths t-shirt awhile back. I just can't explain it, honestly, it's just fishy.
Poor advice.

I still haven't purchased any NMH. I'm very disappointed in myself but I promise myself I will be getting it soon!

My birthday is coming up sometime this month which means I'll probably get a bit of pocket change. However, I do forget when my birthday is and therefore...I have to check.

Wow, I wrote that a while ago. Meh, I suppose Jesse could be seen as smug, most fanboys like myself consider it an air of mystery and confidence, but if you're not a fan I suppose it could be seen as smugness, still it's better to turn people on to good music and be smug about it than to try and get them to listen to horrible classic rock bands that other bands may endorse. To be honest, Jesse is the only reason I ever gave NMH a second chance, because I really didn't like them at first, but I heard Jesse cover Two-Headed Boy Pt. 2 and thought that it was a really good song.

"Ummm like, who's it by?"

"Neutral Milk Hotel? Sounds foreign, that's hot."

Edit:

It's prolly photoshopped though, she was probably holding her CD.

I went cd shopping today and In The Aeroplane Over The Sea was $22 before tax

Another day...I shall buy it.

Download it illegally

Just scanning around at old threads, found this. I still have my vinyl rip up of the In The Aeroplane Over The Sea LP on my site if anyone needs the album, just know that my site is NSFW.

I don't mean to pimp my site or anything (and if this is against the rules, please advise and I'll strike this post), but the vinyl version is a wonderful way to enjoy one of the best albums ever made (and I don't say that lightly).

How much was a vinyl copy of this? I finally bought it for $21.99 (+ tax) which is really the average price I've seen it for. I am enjoying it right now.

i want to have a neutral milk hotel dance party
everyone that would come would have to make some sort of a mashup using a nmh song
i wouldn't have to though because:
1) i am hosting the party
2) i have no idea how to make a mashup
#96
So I told my arguing partner (this girl that I argue with constantly) that I got 'In the Aeroplane Over the Sea' and I knew she had no idea what I was talking about so I asked her if anyone else in the room she was in knew who it was by.

Her cousin did. He = the closest to me knowing a person who has even heard of Neutral Milk Hotel.

it's photoshopped i tell ya!

One of my friends showed this to me the other day and she kept bitching about it.

Who cares?

They're good fucking tunes, what's so terrible about her enjoying them? Why wouldn't you be glad that she wants to listen to good music? I can't figure out why people hate this picture so much. I just don't get it.

No one wants to think, especially snobby indie hipsters, that someone as mainstream and seemingly stupid as Paris Hilton could enjoy something as deep and 'underground' as NMH. I'm pretty sure it's photoshopped though.
#100
I never said it was logical, but that's probably the cause. I'd be happy if Paris Hilton started endorsing NMH, then maybe they'd get more fans.
#102
I'm hooked. I downloaded two songs off LimeWire (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea and Holland, 1945) and they're abolutely brilliant. I've been listening to those two songs the whole day. I haven't heard anything this good for years. I'm dead serious. I got to buy that album.

And yes, random post. I know.

It's good to know you're liking it.

I recommend In the Aeroplane Over The Sea, and most others will recommend it too. Also, both the songs you mentioned are from that album.

If you want to check this out:

It was posted earlier in the thread. There's some live stuff and various other stuff there.

I have yet to hear an album I thought was better

My favorite song is probably Two Headed Boy Part Two. . .

Oh Comely is such a brilliant song. The lyrics throughout the entire album are absolutely spectacular.

In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is as good as I imagined. Every track is amazing. 'Communist Daughter', 'Two-Headed Boy', 'Holland, 1945' and 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea' are proabably my favourite tracks as of now. But the album as a whole is just amazing.

The Paris thing is photoshopped, by the way. The spine of it is the same as her album.

Someone knows Paris' album suspiciously well...

Anyways, finally after having On Avery Island on my computer for ages I'm finally listening to it... and loving it, I also have a bunch of eps and stuff, but haven't gotten to listening to them yet, are they any good?

Even more bootlegs
#112
good stuff besides Avery and In the Aeroplane is few and far between. Bootlegs are where it's at.

Yay, more bootlegs!

Thanks.

I don't like Aeroplane quite as much as On Avery Island. OAI just feels like a more cohesive album. It's a work of art, eclectic and inspiring.
Plus, it pretty much has the best opening song I've ever heard.

Wow, talk about a haunting voice.

Mangum is one of the most talented indie personalitites of alltime.

At the end of "Oh Comely", you can hear one of the band members shout "SH*T" after Mangum performs the whole song on the first take, first attempt.
