While stuck in the shadow of Neutral Milk Hotel's followup, ''On Avery Island'' is still regarded as a fine album by both critics and fans. It helped to cement the characteristic sounds featured on ''In the Aeroplane Over the Sea''; the low fidelity, Jeff's unique voice and the [[WordSaladLyrics lyricism]]. As such, it's seen a resurgence in popularity in light of ''ITAOTS''[=/=]'s current cult status.

'''''On Avery Island''''' is the debut album by Music/NeutralMilkHotel, released on March 26, 1996. Recorded from 1994 and 1996, there are a few key differences between this album and Neutral Milk Hotel's more celebrated release, ''Music/InTheAeroplaneOverTheSea''; there were five session musicians accompanying Jeff Mangum rather than the oft-remembered 1998 lineup, along with the tracks having more energy to them (best exemplified in the opening track, "Song Against Sex").
