why? | Reviewer: Terri | 2/8/13
what happened the day you passed on, Elliott? You gave so much to us from yourself with your music and lyrics. I hope you weren't afraid. I think you may be haunting Rokaia's room. She plays your songs so well x x x x x
poet | Reviewer: gale | 10/1/10
i seriosly cant believe after one time of seeing good will hunting,that i would like the movie but positively fall in love with elliot smith. i think one of the ways he was so wonderful about his music was he was real. the kind of guy you could do coke with and share a bottle of wine and just talk all night.its so sad to think about what he was thinking before he commited suicide. and the way that he did it truely makes me think,i want to be alive as im dying. that might be just my feelings but i think there accurate. i would love to being hanging out with him the night it happend, because if i did he wouldnt have. at least not that night. and i still think thats excactly he chose the way he did it, he wanted to be alive as he was dyeing. i just hope he knows he was so loved. at least he took his wonderfull talent to heaven. he will be missed. i love you elliott, keep singing.
I'm love with the world through the eye's of Elliott | Reviewer: Brandon | 8/26/10
Elliott is more than just a musician or poet.My personal connection to Elliott's music is so much deeper than just liking a song. His vulnerability is what seperated him, his low self esteem, his timidness, his absolute surrendering of every inhibition and exposing his heart completely to the world. He created an intimate and spiritual experience for anyone who would listen. Songs like Waltz 1 and Memory Lane create such an intense emotion in me I feel like they flowed out of a place every human has guarded deeply in their most inner self that no one can see. I lost my mom and my best friend in the last couple years and battle with depression and hard drugs. Sometimes his music is the only way I feel. I have a portrait of Elliott on my arm. He will be with me forever and has shaped who I am. I love you Elliott
love love | Reviewer: Jason | 8/6/09
Why, Why? Can anyone tell me? Of course not. Love you, Elliott. Truly, deeply. I know a lot of us feel this way about him but, "We could've been soul friends." I know, just a passing feeling brought on by (recently) the purest and rawest emotion set to f#*oo@&@!&ing sublimely intelligent musical ideas. (rant rant, bullshit, bullshit, lunatic)
Elliott, a true legend | Reviewer: Claire | 11/11/08
The way I see it, there was far more to Elliott than just music, I believe his music was how the world was able to discover and see him. And the life he lived I wouldn't have changed a bit, not even his death... For most people, including myself, it's the main way of his discovery. His mind operated in such a way where he could just communicate with someone and simply have them under a spell - the things he said and the way he spoke and all of his accomplishments were a simply mind blowing to me. If I had I only know about him before his death, I'd have seen him and been in his presense, I'd be shocked and in love even if from 100 feet away.
He often compared himself to bands when he shouldn't have. He was something so much more, so poetic and always had that ora of knowing something that's no one else ever did. His "music" was far more than just that and gave human beings something to think about... Something to ponder that we'll never truly know but gives us a sense of warmth and something to lookforward to when we die as well.. Possibly, that's just me, but I've seen so many people be so taken by his music in more than just being a fan of his. He deserved so much more, he deserved more than just the title of a musical artist, because he was a legend, he IS a legend and I'll be damned if he's forgotten.
You've truly made an impact, Elliott. I love you and your legend. I look forward to meeting you in that unknown place........
SAD | Reviewer: Shore | 11/9/08
If he only knew how much he wasn't missed then music in the underground would be amazing with no threats of selling out from any band, but he is missed! i just know he is happy because he gets prayers from all over ! GOD BLESS ELLIOTT SMITH!!
play for me in heaven | Reviewer: chelsea | 7/26/08
i can't tell you how much i regret not seeing elliott. I was about six, seven years old when i first heard st. ides heaven. My brother was all about elliotts music. I wasn't aware he had died. Then once I got older I just became obsessed with his voice, and his music. I'm sixteen now and I can barely listen to him without crying. But all I ever want to do is listen to him. I wish I could have seen you, I really do.
-much love to elliott smith<33333
ohh elliott | Reviewer: nomel | 3/12/08
elliott is the most genuine musician i listen to. i live in portland, and catch his little references to places in town, places i am every day, and i think, wow, if i hadn't started listening to him on the day that he died (which is when i first heard one of his songs), i might have seen him getting on a bus somewhere, or just walking down the street, in the late '90s, when i might have had the chance.
elliott's music fills me with an overwhelming emotion that can only be described as little explosions of sweet melancholy. i've had the most vivid dreams about elliott, watched interviews, listened to him talk in the beginning of some of his less popular songs, and melted every single time. if he was alive all i'd want is just to talk to him for a second, just to catch a glimpse of his smile face-to-face, because although i'm very familiar with him as a musician... it seems like, because of the way he is with music, he would be even more lovely as a human being.
we miss you elliott, thank you for leaving us with something so wonderful to remember you by. xoxo
He got me through a lot | Reviewer: Lucian C. | 2/4/08
I also wasn't fortunate enough to discover Elliott until after his passing. Just recently I went through some very tough times and he really got me through it with his wonderfully morose songs. Even though many of his songs were depressing lyrically, they still managed to bring me joy. Anyone who is a true fan of his music will understand what I mean by that. Elliott Smith is a great loss to the world of music and he will be missed. His music shall keep his spirit alive forever though.
THANK YOU ELLIOT SMITH | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/6/07
I first found out about elliot smith back in 98 at the time i was struggling with serious depression all i had was elliot until i heard he died, he got me passed high school literally and its ironic that his fate would be what he saved me from. Poor elliot i still feel his music as if i first heard it even though im not depressed now i can finally say, THANK YOU ELLIOT WHERE EVER YOU ARE "YOU" CHANGED MY LIFE._ Joe
Superb | Reviewer: lewis | 10/11/07
you could say elliott was the complete musical artist, he could write great lyrics, great melodies and great instrumentation/structure, he had his own style, im grateful for his music
.. | Reviewer: Lotte | 9/12/07
And he had a great laugh..
Like, when he screwed up a song completely he would laugh, and the audience would laugh with him. I think he was a great person.
Major Awesome | Reviewer: Heard Dog | 7/13/07
I absolutley love Elliott Smith. I had never heard of him until he was on Triple J's hottest 100 with Memory Lane in 2005, and i was like: Oh my god, i love this music, i've got to hear more,"
So i googled him, and found out that he died and i cried for a good few hours. But now i just listen to his music, and if i'm in a good mood, it makes me happy, but if i listen to it when i'm sad i cry. and unless you yell at me, not much makes me cry, but yes, i love it. "D
One of the best | Reviewer: Jesus | 6/26/07
Either/Or is one of it not the best album I've ever listened to. When I talk to anyone about music I mention this album and if they don't like it I usually just assume they don't know music.
elliott | Reviewer: aly | 4/27/07
i wish i could have been alive while elliott was writing the songs i feel the need to wake up to everu morning and fall alseep to every night. there is no voice as comforting and enjoyable than his is to me, if only i could have heard him live.
