Jeff Magnum's voice is perfect... perfect in the context of NMH, I don't see why everything has to be "nice" and "pretty", sometimes the music needs another kind of voice

Jeff Magnum, Efrim Menuck and the guy from Cursive are probably my favorite singers right now, because their voices are awful

I like NMH and this record because there's some great, catchy tunes on it.

I think that's about enough.

As always...this man speaks the truth (at least in my mind).




And a true Radiohead fan would have had all the Com Lag songs BEFORE Com Lag was released.

Woah now, never said the guy's voice needed to be "nice" or "pretty." I listen to Tom Waits, man. You kidding me?

I generally love vocalists that aren't too traditional. I'll take David Byrne or Win Butler over Geddy Lee or Freddy Mercury any day. Not a big fan of nasally voices, though. And too much Mangum is almost guaranteed to give me some kind of headache.

Like I said though, good record.

this is a darn good album and worthy of praise. maybe not as good as everyone says it is, but eh, whatever.

i find a lot of the lyrics to be icky though.

In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is simply a great album. Will always make my top 10 of all time, but it's definitely an acquired taste. The lyrics can get a bit odd at times, but the melodies, the overall flow of the album, and the stories are just too good to be discounted. Two Headed Boy in particular is a stand-out. Of course, I have recommended this album to others only to be told it was a pile of crap so each to their own I suppose. Check out Beirut's Gulag Orkestar too if you like this.
