For many fans, 1997's low-key but gorgeous Either/Or is the crucial Elliott Smith album to own. Before this, Smith had delivered two lo-fi glimpses of his brilliance (not to mention his output for Portland rock group, Heatmeiser). After this stunning record, we'd get major label budgets and a much poppier sound. But this is Smith at his most raw, performing 12 inspired, near-perfect ballads on his acoustic guitar that would forever get him compared to Nick Drake. "No Name No. 5" and "2:45 A.M." establish Smith as a lost loner and outcast. "Alameda" and "Between the Bars" reveal delicate acoustic guitar chops that matched his prodigious lyrical depth. "Angeles" would go on to be featured on the Good Will Hunting soundtrack, and provide Smith with a taste of mainstream stardom. Simply put, it's the masterpiece of a lost genius.
