Elliott Smith is, (just my 2c), one of the best singer/songwriters ever. Especially this album ( Figure 8 ) is a diamond with songs drowned in melancholy en pain. Although this sounds very dark it applies more to his voice then the music.
Elliott Smith took his life in 2001, aged 34. Conspiracy theory lovers aware: there are still rumours that his girlfriend had something to do with it.
