Overall, the acclaimed Scottish indie pop/folk group's 1996 album proved to be a
very impressive debut. The word-of-mouth success of Tigermilk thankfully led to
the group's continuing efforts of translating Murdoch's songs and ideas into
The album is named after a song that didn't end up on the album – an
instrumental that was later performed on Belle & Sebastian's early tours. All of
the songs on the album were written by Stuart Murdoch between 1993 and 1996, and
originally performed solo on the Glasgow open mic circuit. Though he performs on
the album, trumpet player Mick Cooke was not yet an official member of the band.
Pitchfork Media included "The State I Am In" at number 17 on their Top 200
Tracks of the 90s. The album track "I Don't Love Anyone" was featured in the
film The Devil Wears Prada (2006) and in the closing credits of the fifth
episode of the HBO series Girls, "Hard Being Easy."
