Elliott’s third solo record, and his first after the break up of Heatmiser. An essential release in his back catalogue, Either/Or maintains the lo-fi intimacy of previous efforts Roman Candle and Elliott Smith, whilst upping the complexity and ambition of his arrangements. Miss Misery was even nominated for a bloomin' Oscar! Reissued on a 180gm LP, on Universal. Sad!

10/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 29th June 2015

For me this is completely essential, one of my favourite albums ever and Elliott Smith's best album. I was getting pretty fed up of the music that was being offered up in the late '90s - Britpop really wasn't my bag and it dominated the landscape. For this to come out in the midst of all that, in 1997, was a real breath of fresh air. It was the right album at the right time and from start to finish this album delivers. Whilst the recording techniques aren't necessarily groundbreaking - double tracked vocals and guitars, for example - Elliott Smith makes a sound all of his own. His delivery is paradox of strength and vulnerability, sort of assured but not sure. The opening pair of songs "Speed Trials" and "Alameda" are great but perhaps not as instant as the true classics on here. Next comes one of those "Ballad Of Big Nothing" is Elliott Smith at his best. "Between The Bars" is beautiful, "Pictures Of Me" has a Beatles influenced bounce, although lyrically it's not so bouncy. The last three tracks are all astonishingly brilliant, "Cupid's Trick", "2:45 a.m." and "Say Yes". You must buy this.
