How strange it is to be anything at all

Today marks the 10th(!) anniversary of the release of Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. Many of you out there have been living and breathing the gospel of this un-follow-up-able album for some time now. Perhaps almost too much has been said of its beauty. Impenetrably transcendent lyricism set alongside hauntingly accessible melodies -questionably the best album of the last decade, but without a doubt, the most life-affirming. It always leaves us left knowing there's no reason to grieve.

In The Aeroplane Over the Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel

Oh and hey, Stephen Colbert is a fan?!

Oh, yes. I can say as a huge Stephen fan that there have been MANY reports that Holland, 1945 is played in the studio during commercial break.
