Neutral Milk Hotel

This is important.

One of my Top 5 albums of all time is called, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, by Neutral Milk Hotel. I thought maybe it was just me and a cool album. I had never heard of it and then stumbled upon it by accident a few years ago. Then an entire book was written about the album in the 33 1/3 series. Then a full-page article shows up in the latest Scene magazine. New versions of old reviews are showing up on music sites.

Anyway, there is an enormous amount of hype around this 1998 release right now, with rumors of the band's reclusive writer and frontman, Jeff Magnum, possibly returning to the music scene. Do yourselves a favor and download the album (or buy it -- I promise it is worth the $14). Listen to the album all the way through. You will immediately like several songs and, after a few listens, will like the whole album and love some of it. Except "Oh, Comely." That one still sucks.
