I have always like Built to Spill... well, at least since 1993 or '94 when I first heard/saw them.
Yes, they have been attracting the hippy, earthy, spinning, patchouli-wearing, crowd for a while now... but I still like them. Yes, their live shows can be a tad on the wanky Neil Young-ish extended guitar jams side (good for spinning hippies)... but I still like them. Yes, their last record ("Ancient Melodies of the Future") was not their best effort... but I still like them.
And now they have released "You In Reverse" and all you need to do is play the last track, "The Wait", and you will remember why you spent so many hours listening to Built to Spill years ago.
