Put My Dream on This Planet is the 29th album by Jandek.[1][2] It was his only new release of 2000 (note that there were numerous reissues of the oldest material). The first of three consecutive a capella albums, it is Corwood Industries #0767.[3]

Initially thought by fans to have been recorded on a voice-activated microcassette recorder, Jandek clarified in his 2014 cover interview for The Wire that he recorded this album, as well as the two a capella followups, This Narrow Road and Worthless Recluse, on a standard consumer-grade cassette recorder, and that the pauses in the recording were removed per his request with a noise reduction gate during the mastering stage.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Exclaim! wrote that "Jandek sounds old, with a deep, grainy, Johnny Cash-like voice that appears to be recorded by a portable microphone, as opposed to a crisp studio recording."[5] The Globe and Mail thought that the album "would try the patience of the saints of any faith."[6]
