The way Figure 8 sounds is wonderful, but nothing in that album really stands out to me.
honestly its one of my least favorite ES cd's.

i just find it difficult to read. Some of the sentences are far to long, but i loved your expressive detail and information.

Figure 8 doesn't hold up to his other albums for me, its over produced, and all the songs start to sound the same.
It's just Elliott's attempt at a pop album.

Plus I think the other version of pretty mary k is way better

I don't know. I just don't get it. The album is okay, I guess. I just never jumped on the Elliot train. His songs are just boring to me. I can appreciate a good folk song, but he just doesn't impress me, so I don't get the hype.

Oh well. If I'm wrong, it wouldn't be the first time.

Not like Figure 8 is.
XO is way more personal and you can hear traces of his older work in the music. I dunno, i just don't get the same feeling from Figure 8 like I do with the rest of his music.
