Released by DreamWorks Records on April 18, 2000, it became Smith's second release on a major label and the last album he would complete before his death. Album 2000 16 Songs. Here was Smith, on a major label, still writing heartbreaking songs but cleanly produced and aided by a band that sounded steeped in the retro sounds of the Beatles and Zombies. A handful of tracks Somebody That I Used to Know, Everything Reminds Me of Her, Stupidity Tries still sound like vintage Smith, while a few tracks seem to hint at a new chapter to his sonic world &qu.

Elliott Smith - In the Lost and Found Honky Bach, The Roost. With a couple of exceptions, the sound of Smith's melancholy has largely shifted from edgy to sighingly graceful, although his lyrics are as dark as ever. When we last left Elliott Smith, his Dreamworks debut, XO, was being called the best album of 1998 by all your dad's periodicals. His songwriting had clearly advanced since the release of his heralded indie classic, EitherOr, and songs like Bottle Up and Explode, Tomorrow Tomorrow, and Pitseleh featured far more intelligent lyrics and melodies than the songs off its predecessor. Punk fans will be pleased to know that Figure 8 is a bit more raw than XO, though the same production team- Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf- was called in again. The album accomplishes more with less saccharine perfection. Figure 8 is ranked 704th in the overall chart, 122nd in the 2000s, and 14th in the year 2000. The top rated tracks on this album are Happiness, Somebody That I Used To Know and Son Of Sam. This album is rated in the top 2 of all albums on

Noisy as hell. I wonder if all the ones Bong Load mysteriously had back up for sale after being unavailable for a while were ones people sent back.

How'd it sound? They still have this pressing on their site.

I sure hope not. I think the new reissues have different colors. I just ordered mine, and they were not cheap. I really hope I am happy with my Figure 8.

My copy was pretty noisey, anyone else have this issue?

I just returned the Geffen pressing i got the other day, it was terrible, straight up dirty paper shards all over both of the Lps ( i cleaned the Lps b4 playing them) and all the way thru there was a ton of audible distortion/fuzziness, what a shame, should have ordered the Bongload version instead..YMMV but i'd def avoid this. I had a similar exp with the 4MWB pressing of Anne Briggs first LP, same crappy distortion over the whole LP.

I've owned two other versions - the red and blue plain edition and the back to black repress - and this is easily best of the three, despite the slight surface noise. Also the artwork is loads sharper - I guess all reissues have relied on scans of the original up to now, but the difference is night and day - compare the back covers. You can't even tell Elliott's wearing an earring on the plain and geffen reissues!

i compared as well with the UK 2LP and the images on the jacket are significantly clearer. I would differ with you in the sound category. Sonically, i feel they sound fairly similar with a slight edge to the double LP. Maybe just because they didn't cram all those grooves on one record...who knows. Plus the surface noise is a bit louder than I prefer but I'm sure I will go through a few of these until I am happy lol.

This sounds great! A tad noisy at parts, but overall for a colored 1LP for an album this long, it sounds pretty awesome.
Kemath Kemath
Agreed! I had to send my copy back to BongLoad (mine was pressed pretty off center and the whole LP had a warble) They replaced my XO as well (bad fill errors side one). They were super cool about it, claiming the marble wax cools at different rates causing more fill errors than expected..
Zaryagan Zaryagan
My copy is just a single LP, not a double. I don't think they offered a double.
Coiril Coiril
Sounds great. Best master of this record i've heard. I also have the Back to Black re-issue double LP and the orig Bongload double and this kills both..
Aver Aver
Only available as a single LP. Any comments on the sound?
Hap Hap
Same here. There was not a double LP of this version as far as I have been able to tell.
