I'll be at the top comment section as 3rd to commentin ten years when this page is in serious debate over inducting some of the greatest (and my personal favorite 2000s act tried with sufijan stevens and nina nastasia)

As a member of this generation, I can say Anthony changed my life and made me the artist I am today. One of the most unique and beautiful artists ever. Absolutely genius, the voice that can make the most hardcore atheists believe in the afterlife of some sort. He already has one of the most critically acclaimed Albums "Like a bird now". Which won a Mercury Prize. My generation has all those hipsters claiming their little bad band. But I can tell you I will listen to this remarkable timeless music on my death bed because it is a sheer reminder of how music can give you a different view of the world.

"Hope there's someone" and is the best ballad of this generation and is the one song that gave me the will to search for more music. haunting. "man is the baby" I have played for four years on replete, hell he got me through highschool. I studied to every AP exam with "I'm a Bird now" and "Another world", "You are my sister",


"the spirt was gone" gave the same effect with his ghostly wails, proving he can continue his genius in follow up albums.

The cello on "Like a star fish" and melody from "I fell in love with a dead boy" from early in his career is also remarkable. If you do not believe his genius, search his cover of "soft black stars" and compare it to the original, he recomposed a piece of shit into a piece of timeless music. He is already inspiring more and more underground acts that truly hold the flame of music.

If modern Mozarts or those ahead of their Time like Eliott Smith, Kate Bush, and Nick Drake start to get in, he is a Lock. Can't wait for trolls like "kit" to start fludding the page in a decade.
