He was active during the time in my life when I only cared about fast / heavy and punk music music; I unfortunately missed out. Thankfully, Kevin Devine brought him to my attention years later.

"angeles" was definitely one of the first songs that i heard and just had to hear again. i ripped it off whatever radio show i heard it on (onto a cassette tape) and then put that tape into one deck and another blank tape into another deck and ripped it back to back on a whole cassete side.

Had a friend in college who was obsessed with him and I never gave him a listen.. maybe it's time to expand my interests as my music has changed quite a bit since the old college days

I think it also bares mentioning how prolific he was as a song writer. His songs are imperfectly perfect because he was mindful of the art he was making and less with how perfect the pitch needs to be. And it's because of that that we have such a wonderful body of work to remember him by. RIP Elliott Smith

I've never been a huge fan, but his last album was phenomenal. It's the only one I've heard.

Unbelievable talent that was lost way too young. His last album shows how promising of a career he was heading towards, even with the accomplished albums he already had. If I had to choose my Top 10 songs they'd be(in no particular order)
