  1. There are no great songs to speak of on Dumb Luck, and in fact there are just a few that I would hesitatingly call “good,” or more important, “memorable.”
  2. Everyone seems tired on this album: The songs meander, and the guest singers (including Conor Oberst) speak or moan lyrics they don't seem to care about.
  3. It feels like a mix-tape or compilation, an in-joke or doodle between the participants rather than a completed work for public consumption.

Something tells me that isn't the case though and this has just lost it. Sad. Full Review »

    Not even in the same league as Life is Full of Possibilities.
