One of the things that’s really sad about Elliott Smith’s story is what we consider newsworthy. If he’d finished his 2-CD masterpiece and released it to critical acclaim, it’s doubtful I’d hear about it other than by word of mouth or accidentally running across it. But he throws himself on a steak-knife, and now he’s big news. I guess it’s some small consolation that his music will undergo a posthumous surge.
