    As he continues to spin funny, poignant, depressing and eminently melodic tales of woe, it's clear McCaughey is a staggering genius aging as superbly as a fine bottle of hooch. [#71, p.106]
  2. Of the album’s 13 tracks, not one feels like filler.

    Among last albums I bought this is one of my favourite (but also Morrissey, J. Johnson, Coxon, Stereolab...)

    Enjoyable for the most part, but never spectacular.
