On the occasion of the 10 year anniversary of Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, a couple of people wrote retrospectives that are worth checking out. The first is an argument for the greatness of the album by Will Robinson Sheff. The second looks at what Jeff Mangum has been up to since the album was released by Taylor Clark. Sadly, the answer is not “making more music.” If you’ve never listened to this album, I strongly encourage you to go out and buy it immediately. It’s one of the most affecting pieces of art I’ve ever encountered. It’s hard to believe it’s been around for ten years.
