I feel like "I Don't Think..." and "Angeles" help cement Elliott's place among the better folk guitarists/songwriters of all time...
Favorite track: I Don't Think I'm Ever Gonna Figure It Out.
Released on October 1, 1996, “Speed Trials” was the first single from Elliott Smith’s breakthrough album, Either/Or. The track’s keening rhythms and languished vocal melodies have kept it a favorite in Smith’s catalogue decades after its debut. Backed with additional Either/Or track “Angeles” and the elsewhere unreleased “I Don't Think I'm Ever Gonna Figure It Out”, this 7” highlights Smith’s talent during one of the most earnest and creative periods of his life.
