it took me several times of listening to his songs, on various occasions, over the span of like, i dunno a decade. and then one day it clicked. he's just a man, a sick man, a sad man, a hopeless man, who makes beautiful songs and lives to make music. He's the real thing.. unstable but real. Selfish to say but he couldn't have created such gorgeous art without whatever internal turmoils and conflicts in his mind so things happen for reasons. a martyr, living a life of agony so others in pain don't have to feel so alone. this is a best of list i compiled, or at least in my humble opinion. It's spans the career.

You'll either love him or hate him i suppose. but if you chose to listen, listen once, and then listen to it again later or the next day. repeat. you'll see the genuis. it's just buried under a peculiar and distinctive voice, strange instruments (i thought i heard a fucking glockenspiel. it's been about 20 years since i've heard one of those babies).. if you're a fan there's nothing else i need to tell you, if you're not, well, maybe check him out. he's got an interesting life story and beautiful art came from it.
