4.0 out of 5 stars Why its not my favourite Jeffery Lewis album..., 7 Jan. 2006
This review is from: City And Eastern Songs (Audio CD)
This album comes as a collaboration between Jeffery and Jack Lewis, brothers from the antifolk scene in new york. Its Jeffery's third widely available album; and the production of the album is musically superior to its predecessors. However, it seems to lack the humour that the other two Jeff Lewis albums have, the raw simple joy of the punk songs like 'Man with the Golden arm' [from 'The last time I did acid I went insane...'] or the fascinating honesty of the folksongs like 'Back when I was four' [from 'The ones who've cracked...']. The album does have brilliant moments, like the song 'Don't be upset' but lacks the consistency of the first album, the excitement of the second album, or the brilliant wit of the little available Jack Lewis stuff. Having said that, it is a very enjoyable listen, reflecting truly one of the best live performances in indie rock at the moment.
