In the Aeroplane over the Sea is a studio album by indie band Neutral Milk Hotel released in 1998. In 2008 the album was reissued for its tenth anniversary and received a 10/10 score by the notable indie music site Pitchfork (which is usually used to mock 4chan’s music board /mu/, with claims that their taste relies on what Pitchfork says). /mu/ collectively lost their shit, much like the more recent 10/10 given to Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Neutral Milk Hotel soon became the Holy Grail of indie records and the whipping boy for those who despise the indie counter-culture.
On June 25th, 2010 many members of /mu/ participated in a Listen-Along thread in which they collectively listened to the album in sync. The thread was not stickied, but garnered 2133 posts.
