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

    Dedicated to the late Vic Chesnutt, Mr. M will stand as one of Lambchop's finest, most cohesive, and easiest straight-through listens yet, despite its intermediate tendencies.

    It is in this tension--the struggle to find hope and comfort quickly and the realization that you can't--that Mr. M exists and shines.

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

    Mr. M is something to behold in its details: the kind of record that seems to open up gradually over time, graceful and pretty sure but brimming subcutaneously with many yet-undiscovered pleasures.

    With Mr. M, the countrypolitan grits-glam continues.

    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.
