well of course it's not about anne frank. Just an old-fashioned three-way-love, you know, like me, my friend and my girl. Anne Frank is a ghost of dying love, i mean jesus christ actually died and now they'll never be afraid, anne frank is spoiled love, milky dream without a milking, mass sacrifice.
actually it's funny that all crictics say, 'oh so abctract' 'it's clearly a major statement but whats about', while the whole neutral milk hotel is obviously just one straight story. Man has just sung it from both sides a bit schizophrenic way, for himiself and his brother, all that 'I' and 'you' and 'him' and 'they' are mixing
I don't see why people let the hype and popularity of an album affect their opinion of the album itself. I don't care if you don't like this album. That's fine, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. But if the most complex opinion you can form of an album is based on how "overrated" or "underrated" it is then you're doing something very wrong. And I know a lot of the people here are just /mu/tants trying to run an old meme even further into the ground, but there's also a lot of people who legitimately think this way.
