Features Song Lyrics for Elliott Smith's Roman Candle album.

Roman Candle is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Elliott Smith. Pitchfork has described the album's style as "lo-fi folk". Roman Candle was recorded and released while Smith was still in Heatmiser. According to Benjamin Nugent's biography Elliott Smith and the Big Nothing, Smith recorded the album in the basement of the home of then-girlfriend and Heatmiser manager .

This album seems to get lost in the discussions of Elliott Smith's work, mainly due to how strong his subsequent albums were. But there are two tracks on this album - Roman Candle and Last Call - that by themselves make this a classic album in the indie rock world. Most of Elliott's songs have lyrics that leave them open to interpretation.

Roman Candle was Elliott Smith's debut album as a solo artist, even though he was still a singer and guitarist for the band Heatmiser. Kid Tulsa (Pete Krebs) played snare and cymbal on tracks "No Name and "Kiwi Maddog 20/20".

While it sounds like he is singing more with his throat than with his stomach, Elliott's unassertive vocals fit perfectly with the album's ingrained dryness. The majority of Roman Candle is very skeletal. On the opening line of the album, "He played himself. Smith establishes the LP's solitary and "bare-bones" aesthetic. Primitive production, limited instrumentation, and plenty of jarring guitar squeaks have never felt so imperative. Utilizing his minimal tool set, Smith brings forth the sheer candidness of a young man that carries the weight of the world
