yeah youre right dude, i just didnt wanna put him on here and have some metalhead pricks (not that i dont listen to metal too, i listen to pretty much everything ) say he's a softcore pussy. His lyrics aren't exactly mellow youre right.
I'm sick of following my dreams, I'm just gonna ask where they're going and hook up with them later.
I would definitely say his music is more meloncholy, and his lyrics will definitely give you a new view and feeling of depression nobody else can mimic. I have all his cds and would say I like Figure 8 is the best for sure.
yea that was a rumour, but his girlfriend did help put together his final album which elliott was in the process of making when he committed suicidie, From a Basement on the Hill.
and id rather refer to elliott as indie rock rather than emo. elliott actually dealth with the things he sang about, drug addiction, alcoholism, and etc. i don't know to many emo bands that can write a song about drugs and addiction having experienced first hand. he sang as if it was a warning to not follow in his footsteps. for example, my favourite song, ballad of big nothing covered what im talking about..
yea, but lets not glorify it as the death that all indie kids long for but don't have the guts to do it or they can't tell where to put the knife in their chest because the hair over their eye is messing up their hand eye coordination.
