Stylistically, the album was marked by its experimentation with longer song structures, philosophical lyrics, and the incorporation of cello. The album was essentially recorded three times. The first time, Martsch attempted to play all the instruments except drums. He and Phil Ek were dissatisfied with the results, so Martsch brought in Nelson and Plouf and recorded the album again

Perfect From Now On didn’t mark some dramatic fulcrum in the band’s trajectory-the album sold well enough to begin a relationship with Warner Bros. that, remarkably, only wound down last year. Its follow-up, 1999’s Keep It Like a Secret, was a return to more compact songwriting and subsequent albums have generally followed suit, to surprisingly little diminishing returns. But none of them feel as of a piece as Perfect. On a recent Thursday night in Brooklyn, Built to Spill-now comprised of Martsch, Steve Gere on drums, and Jason Albertini on bass, the same lineup BTS has had since 2015’s Untethered Moon-played to about 250 people between stops on a co-headlining tour with Afghan Whigs. Martsch seemed to only have brought one guitar with him, so changing a broken string or between-song tuning became exercises in long, stubborn, almost performatively awkward silences.
Perfect from Now On manages the amazing trick of being the band's best album to this point, Martsch and company using the opportunities for larger budgets and distribution to create an album at once inspiring and quietly emotional, not the easiest combination to pull off. With drummer Scott Plouf and bassist Brett Nelson as the other core performers, plus second guitarist Brett Netson and cellist John McMahon as key guests, the result is astounding all around.

Perfect From Now On lays it support on the effects ridden ability of Doug Martsch’s guitar playing and also relies heavily on the solidness of drummer Scott Plouf and Peter Lansdowne (on Made-Up Dreams). The first track Randy Described Eternity begins the album with some slow droney guitar playing that soon builds up into a slow trodding psychedelic tempered indie rock song. That is the beauty of this album; Built to Spill kind of takes a note from the Dillinger Escape Plan and messes around so much with tempo changes that you can barely follow the song, even though it sounds perfectly fine to the ear. While the playing on this album is very solid, some may feel Doug Martsch’s vocal ability doesn’t contemplate the music that well. His voice is kind of a high pitched squeal that while similar to Stephen Malkmus’ hipster draw, lacks the attractiveness of most indie rock singers. The line-up for the album was singer/guitarist Doug Martsch, bassist Brett Nelson, and drummer Scott Plouf.
