Mike Doughty returns with his ATO records debut and first full band album since his former group , Soul Coughing disbanded in 2000. Features the song 'Looking At The World From The Bottom Of A Well'. 2005.
Finally, the world is treated to Mike Doughty's first "full-band" album since Soul Coughing disbanded in 1998. Doughty has clearly morphed from hyperactive ironic hipster to a world-class songwriter with lyrics that are funny ("I want to run away and join the office") and self-deprecating but never emo ("All my life I've been slow and senseless/Not struck dumb I'm just dumb that's all"). If you're looking for faults you can always find them, and to be sure some of the playing is overly "pro" and not as funky as M.D. live. The perfect pedal steel touches throughout are actually icing on this cake, and the drummer dude from N.E.R.D.'s metronomic bashing's hardly a bummer. The songs on the album will be familiar to fans who've seen him live, and thanks to Haughty being recorded over a long stretch of time (the songs themselves honed that way too) it has a "greatest hits" feel to it: all killer, no filler. --Mike McGonigal

This is the quintessential M. Doughty record. The songs are ridiculously hooky and driving, and the production the perfect complement. Highly recommended as your MD entry point.Published 3 months ago by Robert J. Falgiano

Doughty is god.
In thousands of ways.
As sad as some of the lyrics can be,
He has the most beautiful soul I have ever seen.
