Raw and beautiful. I still listen to it and it never gets old.
Released in 1997 there are generally three reactions that this record elicits: First: "Huh? Never heard of it." Second: "Hated it. Why did he wail about loving Jesus Christ?" and Third: "This album belongs in the holy canon of indie pop/rock albums." I'm of the third persuasion.
One of the most critically acclaimed and influential indie rock/alternative artists of all time, he's still not for everyone. The songs range from uplifting and life-affirming to haunting and sobering. And yes, the ghost of Anne Frank is woven in throughout, but not overwhelmingly. A must-listen--preferably more than once to let the songs and the nuance really sink in.
I love most of these songs very much. Some of them are annoying. But overall it's a great album.
It was just ok.
Possibly my favorite record of all time.
Anne Frank haunts this album...in a good way.
One of the best records ever.
