niandra lades and usually just a t-shirt - john frusciante (1994)
100/100 (A+)

I just can't be impartial when it comes to this album.
I tried but I can't.
It is literally pain, despair, bitterness and suffering.
Its listening to the album and feeling the same way as Frusciante.

This album helped me a lot and made me the person I am, simply because it appeared at a time when I identified 100% with him. Loneliness, hate, giving up.

Pure expression of what was going on Frusciante's head. ... read more

An IDM essential.
This is one of those albums that i've been listening to for like 2 months straight. Genius. Next to squarepusher and aphex, this is one of my favorite IDM artists and the most close to aphex sound.

fav 3 songs: brace yourself jason, mushroom compost, approaching menace
