The new Lambchop album kind of crept up on me, maybe Lambchop aren't getting the same publicity as they did in the "Nixon" days or maybe I'm getting out of the loop. Anyway, it was a nice suprise to see this on the shelves at my local music store. It was apparantly written under the influence of numerous health problems and even a cancer scare, hence the title "Damaged". Lyrically this is a very strong album, with frontman Kurt Wagner yet again proving himself as one the strongest songwriters around at the moment. This is helped by a really good mix which allows you to hear the words pretty clearly, which wasn't always the case on the last lambchop album, perhaps Kurt was particularly proud of his Lyrics for "Damaged".

As well as he should be, most of the songs on the album are sort of story based, or at least create a snapshot of a moment in the characters life. His feel for characters and sittuations seems very "real" and his writing reminds me for some reason of Douglas Coupland novels, perhaps because he is writing about mundane things in a beautiful way. Paberback Bible, for example, is taken pretty much word for word from a Tennessee radio show, Swap Shop on which customers would phone in to buy and sell everyday objects.

The sound on this album is, for the most part, pretty sedate. It's not what you would really describe as "catchy" but the laid back pace, atmospheric lead guitar and beguiling string parts certainly have a way of drawing you in. I find "the rise and fall of the letter P" to be paricularly melodically strong, with a really nice lead guitar part on the second verse and "I would have waited here all day" has a really nice horn section, it kind of sounds like a classic funk song slowed down to the usual Lambchop pace!

The last album (AwComon/NoYouCmon) was a rather variable double, both in terms of quality and style. 'Damaged' is a big return to top form. Smooth and subtle in the manner of 'Is A Woman' it is however warmer and musically richer that that minimal masterpiece. 'Damaged' at times has the lush orchestration of 'Nixon' although not quite the same up-tempo swagger.

The mood is one of wry and gentle soulfulness. The lyrics are great, and enjoyment of them helped by the fact they are also printed in the booklet!

It is one of those albums that will win you over not by one or two standout tracks but by it's effect as a whole. It grows and reveals complexities on repeated listens and feels to be right amongst their best work.

Another reviewer has said the album works as a whole rather than relying on standout tracks. I agree it is a beautiful album, as a whole.

But there are nine standout tracks.

It is exquisite.

... along with OH (Ohio) and Mr. M. There is nothing more touching or beautiful or deeply meaningful around in the field of (what used to be known as) popular music, than Lambchop.
Sample tracks: Paperback Bible and Prepared (2).

This reminds me of one of those moments when you walk into a church to have a look at the architecture and discover there is a service going on. Normally I'd slip quietly out shaking my head at the devotion of the assembled. However some of you may have come to this band by exploring the tangled web that is alternative country. If you are into the soporific, introspective end of it, e.g.Bright eyes, Iron and Wine etc. then this will be for you. The band can probably play (and even sing)if they want to but you won't find much to tap your foot to here. Each to his own, this is a blind alley for me.
