  • Summary: Former Camper Van Beethoven frontman David Lowery once again leads Cracker for the band's first new album in four years. Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous co-produces and adds backing vocals and instrumentation.

  1. An earthy-meets-outré, smart yet accessible set that proves Lowery's all he's cracked up to be.
  2. Probably Cracker's best album since 1993's Kerosene Hat.

    A smart and occasionally gorgeous country-fried rock effort. [Mar 2002, p.77]
  4. Cracker sounds like it's having fun again.
  5. Midway through, the sound of Lowery and co's batteries running down becomes almost audible.
  6. You've got your acoustic guitar base, your occasional slide guitar fill, your Dylan-esque organ, your chug-a-lug drums, and your mildly catchy melodies. It would be offensive if it wasn't so obvious that Cracker doesn't aspire to much more than this sort of rustic middle-America mediocrity act.

    My favorite Cracker cd. As fresh today as when it was released.

A true delight. Try to find a copy with the excellent bonus live cd. Their version of Pictures of Matchstick Men is a classic. Expand
