About this album

XO is the name of the fourth album recorded by American singer-songwriter Elliott Smith. Smith’s first work on a major label, it was released by DreamWorks Records on August 25, 1998. Bong Load Custom Records released it on vinyl LP, which has since gone out of print. Vinyl copies of XO remained rare until a re-release by Plain Records in 2008. The album is also available as digital download.

The singles from XO were “Waltz #2 (XO)” and “Baby Britain”. An early working title for the album was Grand Mal. Smith recorded numerous songs during the XO sessions that did not make it to the album.

    I always wondered about the title, XO. Could it be a reference to the Christian Brothers brandy also named XO? Continuity win if it is.

    Sunday was 15 years since it was released. Damn.

    This album has some great songs. I haven't listened to it as much as the others because it strikes me as polished and less authentic. It's still Elliott but less so.

    Each to their own, but I love this album to death.

    His earlier stuff is just better. I'm not trying to be too cool for school. I just like it more, whereas this album leaves me cold. New moon and self-titled album ftw.

    Oh, this must be his "worst" since it's his most popular, right? Oh okay. [3]

    This album brings back so many memories from high school... I'm just sad I never got around to see Elliott in concert...

    I love how some tracks suddenly burst into baroque pop epics
