    After he goes down on his knees and prays, as he promises he will, this album will be Exhibit A on his application.

    It's an exquisitely bittersweet meander through Wainwright's cobweb-strewn psyche liable to leave listeners laughing through tears and crying through laughter.

    You'd be mistaken to pass up the greatest album of Loudon Wainwright III's four-decade career, and an easy frontrunner for this year's best album, period, as 2012 enters its second half.

    A beautiful, wonderful, funny/heart-wrenching, thought-provoking record from Mr. Wainwright III as he looks back on what is, what was and whatA beautiful, wonderful, funny/heart-wrenching, thought-provoking record from Mr. Wainwright III as he looks back on what is, what was and what could have been. Stirring, emotional ballads ('In C') mix with humorous ditties ('My Meds') in a joyful/painful looking back/forward at life. With the exceptions of 'Date Line' and 'I Remember Sex', one of Loudon's best records ever, IMO. The other 13 tunes rate a '10.' Full Review »
