    Dead Man Shake is not as fulfilling as Grandpaboy's last album, Mono. Paul Westerberg has wrote better material recently and this album seems a little disappointing because he has wrote some fine Rock and Roll. Yet the album does have it's moments from time to time and the good outweighs the bad.

    i got this album as a pre sell from fat possum, not really knowing paul westerberg, just knowing of him. right off the bat it hooked me. originals were fantastic but his slow burn on im so lonesome i could cry sounds like it is sung by a man on tripping his brains out and having to stay calm while a cop searches his car. uncomfortable in his speech and about to freak out . lastly, i think i got this album as a pre sell from fat possum, not really knowing paul westerberg, just knowing of him. right off the bat it hooked me. originals were fantastic but his slow burn on im so lonesome i could cry sounds like it is sung by a man on tripping his brains out and having to stay calm while a cop searches his car. uncomfortable in his speech and about to freak out . lastly, i think at times he sounds like the closest thing to mike bloomfield i have heard in forever Expand

    It's great fun, but Come Feel Me Tremble has more ballast. [Nov 2003, p.123]
