    Who is making the money off this album? I really still don't understand the whole dead people releasing new albums phenomenon...

    If he didn't sing, the CD would have been much better. He can play the guitar, and write some lyrics, but thats where his talent stops. I don't feel like listening to someone who cant sing in a genre of music where I think you need to showcase your vocals when it is almost acapella in nature. He is out of tune every other line. Sorry, not for me.

  1. As hope, there are revealing looks at Smith's developments as a writer. [#17, p.87]

    New Moon sounds less like a pile of outtakes than an official album released in a parallel universe.
  3. Smith's trademark combination of breathy - almost whispered - vocals, deceptively resilient acoustic melodies, and sombrely introspective lyrics, is shown off to sufficiently good advantage here to make New Moon a worthy companion piece to 1995's Elliott Smith and 1997's Either/Or.
