    It is sad to say the first I heard of him was reading his obit.
    Sort of suprised not to see a thread on him, but I would really like to get one of his cds and was wondering what would be a good one to get?
    Thanks
    Grant

    I'm a big fan of his work. "XO" is his most commercially successful album--and also one of his best. I'm partial to the "Good Will Hunting" soundtrack which includes several of his songs.

    There's a memorial concert for him on November 3rd in Los Angeles.

    His new single is reviewed in the current issue of Spin magazine and it gave the song a very favorable review. Ironically, the final line of the review (which was written before he died) states that he may have been missing in action, but with this single he is very much alive.

    I have XO and Figure 8. Both are stellar! Personally, I find XO to be somewhat baroque sounding compared to Figure 8. This is not a bad thing, though. Both are great sounding discs filled with classic, sometimes haunting music. Heartily recommended!

    Actually there was a thread ==> RIP Elliott Smith.

    I rewatched Royal Tenenbaums just the other night. His music fit perfectly.

    We've lost one of the most talented and brilliant songwriters and beautiful souls ever.
    I saw his last concert in Salt Lake.
    If you haven't heard much of his stuff, Roman Candle, his first album, is my favorite album. But they're all amazing.
    He is missed.

    i saw him once, didn't know who he was at the time. he opened up for the tindersticks at the fillmore in 97 or so. i was compelled to pick up a cd the very next day. wish i'd seen him again, after i knew his music better.
