*MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Generally around a soft 2-4, though some songs, especially from earlier years, arguably reach a 5 due to the strange instrumentation.

* WordSaladLyrics: The lyrics are extremely dense and esoteric, more thematic than anything literal - they still draw a narrative, but in very abstract ways.

Hints of reunions have circulated around over the past years, but nothing definite as to whether or not they'd truly get back together. Finally, in 2013 the full band was reunited, if only for a tour. As of yet, there's no information on possible new records. ArcadeFire said that they signed to Merge Records because it was Neutral Milk Hotel's record label. Because of this, the two bands are constantly compared. In contrast, Jeremy Barnes' other band, Music/AHawkAndAHacksaw, is so wildly different from his work with NMH that the two are rarely compared.

Jeff Mangum formed a band called Synthetic Flying Machine with high school friends Will Cullen Hart and Bill Doss in the late 1980s. Though the band never fully got much recognition, they stayed together for a couple of years, eventually changing their name to The Olivia Tremor Control. Mangum soon got the desire to do some experimentation with a separate project and that's where NeutralMilkHotel was born.

After leaving The Olivia Tremor Control, Mangum started putting more work into NeutralMilkHotel and in 1996 their first album, ''Music/OnAveryIsland'' was released. Though critically praised, this album is -- [[BrokenBase perhaps rather unfairly]] -- not nearly as remembered as their CultClassic that would be released next.
