Elliott Smith- XO

His songs range from anticipating getting high to love songs to girls in trouble, and his catchy guitar riffs and upbeat drums meld with his to voice to create XO...an exceptional record. Elliot is a smart song writer. Never letting a song run too long or get too boring, this should be a treat for, say, a Modest Mouse fan who finds himself skipping the slow songs. The first track, Sweet Adeline, starts out slow and quickly explodes about a minute in, and Baby Britain is an upbeat piano/short-riff guitar heaven. In my eyes, XO is nothing short of a masterpiece.
