Lambchop are one of those bands that cannot be pigeonholed easily. They take their influences from many genres of music, the result being an explosion of various sounds focused to expressing one emotion at a time. Nixon is the album where this is most evident.
Kurt Wagner is a master songwriter, and knows just how to play on the emotions of his listeners. Nixon takes us down many different, intervening paths. The opening track 'The Old Gold Shoe" is an easy-paced relaxing number. From there the songs varied. 'Up With People' is bright and uplifting, whereas 'The Butcher Boy' much darker and celebrates a fascination with all thing morbid. Each track, however, complements each other to produce an work of essential listening for all music fans, no matter where your taste in music lays.
Lambchop's latest album, Is a Woman, is a far more focus, finely tuned affair. But it lacks the sense of mystery that makes this a winner. If Nixon was the album the band made to find their sound, and Is a Woman the result of that search, then we can say the journey was more rewarding than the goal.

This album won the Uncut album of the year award a decade ago and has proven to be the best of a very high quality set of albums by Lambchop.It's a very polished cross betwen alt country, soul and gospel that has if anything improved with age. 10 stunning tracks.

Probably the most thrilling thing about this deluxe version is the full length concert from the Royal Festival Hall, London on DVD which covers the material from the 'Nixon' era, with not only some great songs from their back catalogue, but also a couple of classic tracks 'New Cobweb Summer' and 'My Blue Wave'from the follow up 'Is A Woman' album.

This is a truly great deluxe version with both the classic original album and the excellent live concert performance on DVD, making it a 'must have' reissue both for existing fans, and for anyone who has yet to experienced the sublime Lambchop masterpiece. Highly recommended and one of the top reissues from 2010, in my opinion.

The evolution of Lambchop from the wistful alt.country of the magnificent How I Quit Smoking album to the majestic soul of Nixon has been a joy to witness. Nixon furthers the Curtis Mayfield influences guiding Kurt Wagner's collective on What another Man Spills, offering lavish, rounded songs that make Nixon Lambchop's best album to date. Up with People is the ultimate party anthem (!), whilst The Book I Haven't Read and The Distance From Her To There are quite exquisite in their delicacy. Better than the last two years best alternative efforts by Mercury Rev, Eels, Wheat and the Flaming Lips, this is an absolute masterpiece.

I am a moderate music fan, not really given to hyperbole when it comes to the appreciation of music, but this album is simply one of the most beautiful things I have heard to date. Ever. Being appreciative of country music, and also of soul music, the combination of these sensibilities creates a hybrid sound that is so quietly powerful it is almost too much to bear. That is not to say that this is simply a country-soul record, as that is an all too simple classification. No, if anything, people are going to have to come up with a new name for this, because I for one have not really heard anything like it before. I urge anybody reading this to buy this album. You simply do not realise what you are missing.

Format: Audio CD
Nixon was the record that got me into alt-country, even if it was the Lambchop album that saw the band off on a tangent too far for some fans of the scene. A highly unlikely marriage of Curtis Mayfield-type soul and pedal-steel country twang, it is an album of authentic and timeless ambience that had lost none of its singularity. Probably because Nixon's sound is so odd - dark, lush and jazzy orchestrations, with Kurt Wagner's deadpan murmer interrupted by cracked, oddball falsettos - it has not been diluted by imitators. It remains a swirling, breezy oddity, best taken in its atmospheric whole than as a sum of individual parts. Somehow both bleak and romantic at the same time, the soulful aspect of this record completely liberates Wagner's downcast, despondent tales of working-class life, transforming them into something otherwordly and dreamlike. A timeless classic then, for fans of Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, Calexico or even Richard Hawley.

I had never heard Lambchop before 'Nixon'. The first time I played it, skipping tracks to get a general feeling of the album, all the sounds were so hip that the subsequent information that it was a Nashville band came as a shock. Nashville? Yes, but that's exactly what makes it so beautiful. Listen to tracks such as Grumpus or Up With People and you'll realize that all the soulful and luscious sounds blend with slide guitars, violins and a full orchestra of little things that distinguish it from anything else you've heard before. The best thing about Nixon? Definitely 'You Masculine You', a GREAT track (a personal favourite for this year) and Kurt Wagner's falsetto voice - beautiful, sensual, magical. A must.

Hopefully the wonderfully surreal video for "Up With People" is gonna introduce the sublime genius of Lambchop to a wider audience sometime soon. In the meantime I'm making a lot of friends by playing "Nixon" to new listeners every week. Anyone from fans of the Cowboy Junkies (the Godfathers of alt.country) to Parliment freaks get into this album pretty darn quick thanks to the ecletic charm of the thing. Oh yeah and it's real hard not sing along to "Up with People" after you've heard it once too. Best Album of the year so far - and thats a hard admission from a big Morcheeba fan like myself!
