Johnston solo or nothin'

"As a devote Johnston follower I have found that none of the CD records he has released compare to the Stress Record tapes he made thru out the 80's.
It seems that whenever Daniel has a band behind him his material just sounds plain if not bar bandish. For the true beautiful agony and despair of his talent search for the Stress record tapes. In particular, "The What of Whom" tape/album will make your heart implode. These tapes are usually just Johnston playing piano or guitar, raw and uncontained by a band. Do yourself a favor."
Hard listen rewards big time

"Daniel Johnston is a hero to anyone who had all these ideas but couldn't put it out in a nifty format for the every person to swallow easily. You have to take this album like he was right there in your room performing for you, then you'll get how good his pop sense is, although sometimes it does admittedly get ridiculously bland and silly, it's worth it cause there are so many gems in here."
I was a time traveler, listening to the heavenly laughter.

"I bought this on recommendation, and after a listen through, it sat on my shelf for a year or so. Now I'd consider it among my favorite albums, one I've possibly listened to more than any other. The songs are incredibly varied- from totally whacked out synthesizer experiments, to Ramone-esque rockers like 'Psycho Nightmare', to nervous blues renditions like 'Catie'- but Daniel's unique, personal lyrics and tenuous voice hold everything together really well. My favorite song is "Happy Time", a nostalgic/messianic self-portrait. Daniel's earlier non-studio albums are also great, but this album is unique for its clear sound and simple production."
