    Mostly, Mr. M is exemplary Lambchop because its so unmistakably Wagner's vision.

    It's to Lambchop's credit that their music avoids comfortable resolutions. Instead, it hangs there, no moral, no judgment.

    Dedicated to friend and colleague Vic Chesnutt, Lambchop's 11th album is as refined and dignified as the top-hat-wearing gentleman depicted on the cover.

    Wagner's conflicting emotions are reflected in his band's fluid, conversational playing: restless yet sedate, wistful yet furious, the sound is still on the surface but teeming beneath.

    While Mr. M consists of 11 allegedly different songs, the album has the unified feel of a single multi-movement suite.

    It's another contradiction, a subtle genre-jumper but a cohesive whole.

    Mr M is an honest but tough old ride.

    The album "Mr.M" Lambchop - is a CD on which has been shown toned, swinging folk songs. The very first "film" song - "If Not I'll Die" allows the listener to immerse himself in the mood. Although the compositions such as "Kind Of" or "Nice Without Mercy" are a lethargic, signature songs - but also it's worth listening an alternative "Gone Tomorrow" - where band experiment with lots of instruments and light-hearted "The Good Life (Is Wasted)" where expressive vocals're especially memorable.
