ITT: The most emotionally devastating album for you personally.
This album for me, it meant a lot to me when I was a teenager in my first years of highschool. Specifically it reminds me if a time when a girl and I were both extremely depressed/suicidal, I remember standing outside of the guidance room at school feeling like shit because I couldn't handle being in the same room as her while she was crying, this album was the sountrack to my life during those times.
Such a great fucking album. This and Either/Or are probably his best while he was still lo-fi acoustic. Nothing beats the live version of The Biggest Lie with a female backup singer from The Softies. That's how I found out about them in high school. He's probably one of the few singers to sing about pain and it comes off as genuine and not whiny. Also helps that his guitar style is excellent.
THEN I WAKE UP N FUCKING SPIT IN THEIR FACE
JUST BECAUSE WERE ROOTED DOESNT MEAN WERE IN PLACE
LOSING THE DREAM
this and/or Avey Tare's Abyss Song (Abby's Song)
that's exactly what I'm going to do this saturday
>I like my neighborhood, I like my gun
>Driving your little car, I am your girl and I will protect you.
From the first track it's damn
For me this is absurd clinical depression levels of self-loathing: the album. Especially the song Coward.
"Stick a knife in me...and walk awayyyy!!"
"Cuz I am WORTHLLLLEEEESSSS
The romance ensued by Gainsbourg and his loli-lover was portrayed beautifully.
Listen to the song "L'hôtel Particulier" while reading the translated lyrics and you can feel and understand his love for her

Not for the content itself, but the memories attached to the album
A lot of relatable lyrics as well as some that just hit me hard regardless makes me just want to cry into beer if I give this a chance to.
I keep trying to post this cool tool somebody made that allows people to filter their genre preferences and pick the right Buckethead Pike album for them, but it keeps telling me its spam. Frustrating.
I got this album for christmas and it's okay, like I don't mind listening to it but it's not the masterpeice it's made out to be. I really enjoy other things that Kramer has produced but I find this one to be a little soft, the Red Krayola cover in the bonus tracks was cool though.
I am not even joking.
Converge - Jane Doe
La Dispute - Somewhere blah blah
Grouper - Dragging a Dead Deer, Man Die Boat
Slint - Spiderland
Also, lately I get fucking goosebumps all the way through Mount Eerie's Lost Wisdom.
I am the guy who posted Public Castration because it entails the entirety of my self-loathing/clinical depression, but this album was also on repeat once I realized the one person who gets me the best doesn't have romantic feelings for me.
As a result that girl kinda became my Jane Doe so I had that on repeat, too. I don't get why ITAOTS is feels worthy though. Maybe I'll feel it better once I am not depressed.
