Figure 8 is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Elliott Smith. 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. 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. Elliott Smith - Figure 8 2000.

Elliott Smith - In the Lost and Found Honky Bach, The Roost. 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, Elliott Smith's zweites Major-Album für Dreamworks, setzt den ambitionierten Sound des SingerSongwriters konsequent fort und begeistert erneut mit PopRock-Songs, welche zeitlose Melodien und bittersüsse Vokalharmonien in Hülle und Fülle bieten. Wer Elliott Smith nur über seine sparsamen akustischen FolkRock-Songs aus dem Good-Will-Hunting Soundtrack kennt, der wird ganz schön Augen machen: da klimpern Pianos, Hammond-Orgeln, Cembalos und allerlei andere Instrumente herum, hinzu kommt Akustik- und Stromgitarre, und über allem türmt sich Smith's eng
Made an impulse buy at my local shop and regret it now. Sounds like sandpaper, especially side D. I am going to try returning it. Fingers crossed.
The shop accepted the return for store credit, thank goodness.
They set out to create the worst sounding record of all time and by god did they do it. A curse upon mankind. Kudos.
I've collected for years and have never come across really bad pressings. I've looked through water damaged sleeves, old garage sales, and basement-dwelling records. NEVER have I listened to such a terrible pressing. It actually amazes me how bad this sounds. There's a lot of rough noise during the acoustic parts, and distortion when Elliott sings melodies in those songs. The louder songs are also very distorted.I've never experienced such extremes on a record pressing, and it saddens me that it's on an Elliott record. Wish some factory/company can release a proper pressing. This album, and all Elliott's music, deserves the proper and exceptional treatment. I have no idea why his records are very variable with pressings. Seems counter-intuitive to how his music should be heard.Just knowing that "Happiness" doesn't have "The Gondola Man" on the same side of the record should've deterred me away. Those two songs go back-to-back. If I knew that when purchasing, I would've not bought this record. Wish you could see reviews on your mobile Discogs app, but I have not been able to see that. I don't normally leave reviews, but Elliott's music means a lot to me and I don't want others to purchase this pressing. Regardless, everyone should listen to Elliott's music. It has the emotional depth that is not seen in music then and today.
Garbage pressing, I wish someone with skill would master this and XO
One of the worst album pressings I've ever heard...whoever mastered this thing should be shot. Fantastic album but avoid this unlistenable pressing at all costs!!
Can't make a sound is one of my favorite songs. I was so disappointed when it sounded terrible like someone was turning up the sound on a radio that couldn't handle it. Should've read reviews on this album before purchasing. Probably will just use it as a placeholder until I can get a better version and then just listen to the album on Spotify.
Should have read this first! I still listen because it's not unlistenable but.... yea super shitty.
I'm as guilty as the rest- my first copy had distortion all through "Can't Make a Sound;" my second copy came pre-scuffed. No wonder they were clearing it out at a mainstream retail outlet.
Wow, everyone is right here. This album sounds absolutely terrible.
Piling on here - this is a super bad pressing of this album. A lot of distortion.
This is easily the most disappointing sounding album I've heard. What a disgrace. Avoid this pressing at all costs, don't make the same mistake I did.

Worst sounding album I've ever heard. A disgrace to an amazing album.
Absolute trash pressing. Sounds terrible. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Don't make the same mistake I and many others here did.
Sounds horrible, I didn't see these reviews until after I bought it. I thought maybe mine was an exception but it seems like that isn't the case.
Guys, how can I return it to the company? I'm quite disappointed by the overall sound of this matrix, as it's one of my most beloved albums ever.
ddi you ever try this? i would return it for sure
Do not buy it. The sound quality is compromised. Saturated low frequencies and background noise. Unbelievable that Universal Music used Plain's matrix.
I just brought my copy home. Don't bother with it. It's on two lps so I hoped that it would not sound as bad as everybody is saying, but it does. Wow, what a bummer.
The quality of the cover/sleeve art alone is vastly inferior to the Bong Load reissue. I compared them side by side and it's night & day. Wish I'd known ahead of time of the connection to the the Plain mastering - this will stay unopened and promptly be returned to UMe. Very disappointing.
This is a complete disgrace....looks like i get to do some returning next week.
How did you manage to return it to the company?
Friday 6th April 2017:PLEEZE - what's the scoop - - - what's the mastering for these 2017 reissues of Figure 8 and XO? An SH forumster is absolutely positive that the deadwax on his just purchased 2017 XO indicates the dreaded Plain Recordings matrices. So apparently Universal just used Plain's 2008 metal plates to hack these out - ugh! If you have contradictory info, please post it.
Thanks for the heads up. It'd be nice to have a good 2x LP version, but the Bong Load reissue from last year sounds just fine and can still be had a a reasonable price.
Unfortunately, this mastering is exactly as the same as the Plain Recordings. They used the same plates, and have 'PLAIN 127' in the matrix.Incredibly disappointing. I hope this gets properly reissued someday.
