[Kill Rock Stars; 1997]
Whispering his way into your heart with the voice of an angel,
Elliott's new solo record, Either/Or, is the type of
music you'd hear in Heaven's elevator: While everything's
nice and pretty, you're still pretty bummed out that you died.
Smith shares all his personal secrets with us like other
Smiths before him. (i.e. The Smiths, The Cure's Robert
Smith, etc.) The result is nothing less than Zoloftian
genius. I'll put money down that says this is the best
album Kill Rock Stars releases for a couple of months.
