Borrowing the live-band energy of Dinosaur Jr. and the stylistic reach of Sebadoh, Barlow has built on Emoh’s full production and written a set of immediate, melodic pop songs that Lou describes as, “a cross between my later work with Folk Implosion and my earlier work with Sebadoh…to my ... ears, anyway.”

From the surging opening track “Sharing” to ... Read more in Amazon's Lou Barlow Store

If you don't have any album from Low Barlow, start with EMOH. It's a great album. This was not what I expected as a follow up album.

4.0 out of 5 stars His Alibi Your Own 9 Feb 2010
By Andrew K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Every now and then, an artist comes along who impacts you in a special way. I have been listening to Lou Barlow for about fifteen years and I'm always excited when he comes out with something new. I can easily mold myself to where he happens to be; whether it is the lowest of fidelity home recordings, to professional studio work, and back again. No matter what band he is in (Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh, Folk Implosion, New Folk Implosion), or what he calls himself (Sentridoh, Lou Barlow), I always feel like he just gets better with time. Sure, it's hard to top the older classic material we've spent many years with, but his style is always there in his lyrics, his expressive voice, his playing, and his melodies. Released in 2009, "Goodnight Unknown" is more of a production than his last, mostly acoustic disc. It starts off with two rockers that have barely audible vocals before settling in to what you may expect the follow-up to his last album to sound like. "Too Much Freedom" is a shuffle I always get stuck in my head. "The Right" and "Gravitate" expand his acoustic stylings nicely. It's not his best album, but it's a continuation of a wonderfully prolific career that has never let me down. He has always been very influential to me musically, and he is my favorite songwriter. Lou deserves a lot more attention then he seems to get. The guy is awesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- Anxious lullabies from Sebadoh/Folk Implosion founder 8 Oct 2009
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Lou Barlow's output is something to behold. Across albums with Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh and Folk Implosion, as well as a string of side- and solo-projects (some released as Sentridoh, some released under his own name), Barlow's explored a lot of territory. Much like 2005's Emoh, Barlow's latest album splits its time between acoustic-centered folk songs, layered pop-rock, and crafted studio production. The album opens with the hard-charging "Sharing" and the electric bash of "Goodnight Unknown," but Barlow's voice also takes turns in dreamy sing-song, penetrating directness and confessional angst.

His folk-pop influences are heard on the terrific "The One I Call," melding the sweetness of Donovan with the questioning of Cat Stevens. The morning drowsiness of "Take Advantage" is juxtaposed with the looping percussion of "The Right" and staccato rhythm of "Gravitate." Barlow's lyrics are often poetically abstract, but the booklet's background images suggest themes of temptation, greed, confusion, discovery, ambivalence, self-loathing, patience and seeking. There is both venal opportunism and contented love here, but if you're looking for finely drawn character portraits or story songs, look elsewhere.

In a making-of video that accompanies the album's release, Barlow mentions that his new album reminds him of the Folk Implosion's One Part Lullaby, an album recorded upon Barlow's relocation to Los Angeles, a city whose "concept" nagged him. The anxiety and ambivalence induced by his new environment remains in `Faith in Your Heartbeat," as well as in the wide-swinging dynamic range of the album. With musical assistance from drummer Dale Crover (Melvins), guitarist Imaad Wasif (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Barlow creates acoustic ballads, driving rock tunes and thumping studio productions that will sing your anxieties to sleep. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
