The String Quartet Tribute to Elliott Smith Review

by Johnny Loftus

This string tribute to Elliott Smith captures the elegiac sadness that floated through so much of the late songwriter's work, particularly on "Angeles," "Needle in the Hay," "Amity," and "Waltz #2." The instrumental arrangements for violin, viola, and cello follow the melodic threads quietly, as if the intent was for the listener to fill in the words.
