I had listened to NMH's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea back in college a few times. I never really got into it; I mostly skipped to my favorite songs and, right off the bat, I didn't like Two Headed Boy or In The Aeroplane Over The Sea.
Early this year, I was looking through my CD shelf and, by chance, this album fell on my foot and the corner bruised me a little. I saw it as sign from the Universe and played it from start to end.
And I have not been able to not listen to it at least twice a week for the last 10 months. Every song flows so beautifully from the last one until the breathtaking squeaking chair at the end...
The last time I got into an album really heavily like this was with both Dark Side Of The Moon and Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures...
Anyways, I don't mean to drag on and on but I just wanted to know what some of your recommendations are for a similar album to Aeroplane.
Additionally, if you were ever really into this album, what was the next album you got really into after this one? What places and doors did this album create for you or what other bands have you come to appreciate after this one?
I hope the question isn't too fuzzy...haha.
