Of all the recordings to emerge from the Athens-via-Denver collective called Elephant 6, Neutral Milk Hotel s second album is the one that has worked its way under the most skins. Magnet magazine named it the best album of the 1990s, and Creative Loafing recently devoted a cover story to one fan s quest to understand why band leader Jeff Mangum dropped out of sight soon after Aeroplane s release. The record sells steadily to an audience that finds it through word of mouth. Weird, beautiful, absorbing, difficult, In The Aeroplane Over the Sea is a surrealist text loosely based on the life, suffering and reincarnation of Anne Frank, with guest appearances from a pair of Siamese twins menaced by the cold and carnivores, a two-headed boy bobbing in a jar, anthropomorphic vegetables and a variety of immature erotic horrors. Mangum sings his dreamlike narratives with a dreamer's intensity, his creaky, off key voice occasionally breaking as he struggles to complete each dense couplet. The music is like nothing else in the 90s indie underground- a psychedelic brass band, its members self-taught, forging polychromatic washes of mood and tribute. The songs stick to one narrow key, the images repeat and circle back, and to listen is to be absorbed into a singular, heart-rending vision.

Actual rating: 3.5 In stark contrast to J. Niimi's book on Murmur, the only 33 1/3 book I've read, Kim Cooper's book focuses almost exclusively on the historical context of NMH's masterpiece, namely ... Leer reseña completa

The 33 1/3 series is a pretty nifty idea: write short, yet thorough books based on a seminal album. I first heard about this series when a friend of mine sent information about the publisher seeking ... Leer reseña completa

Sobre el autor (2005)

Kim Cooper is the editrix of Scram, an occasional journal of unpopular culture dedicated to celebrating unjustly neglected artists in the worlds of music, literature, film/TV, comics and bohemia. With fellow 33 1/3 scribe David Smay, she is co-editor of the anthologies Bubblegum Music is the Naked Truth and Lost in the Grooves: Scram's Capricious Guide to the Music You Missed. A third generation Angeleno, Kim offers offbeat bus tours of the city's crimes, literature and architectural gems through Esotouric, and blogs at the crime-a-day 1947project.
