I would consider myself a huge Vic chesnutt fan, and I must say that this album is a huge disappointment. Drenched in Daniel Lanois-esque reverb, the texture and production is blaaaaaa. But, the blame may not lay solely on Vic's shoulders. I think the Keneipp's are responsible for some of this mess.
The lyrics are muddled and embarrassing, the tunes are rambling (it pains me to write this, I love ALL of his previous albums).
The album is not without its highlights--"Fissle" is great, and "Sunny Pasture" and "Haiku" are classic Vic ...
... but avoid this album. If you are looking to discover the wonders of Mr. Chesnutt, check out "West of Rome" or "The Salesman and Bernadette." There is absolutely great great Vic Chesnutt out there. This just doesn't happen to be it.

Of course, like all of Vic's CD's, Merriment requires 20+ listens to form even the most elementary of impressions. Shades of Abbey road esp. in 'Sunny Pasture'. Feather is moving and doesn't yield easily. Highlight is perhaps 'DNA', which provides an interesting take on the prison of genetic determinitism. In a sense this song returns to the themes earlier expressed in 'Naughty Fatalist' on the debauched 'Drunk' album. The moral- we need not accept the prescription... Perhaps not as successful as Salesman and Bernadette, but this does stand as another of Vic's interesting experiments in collaboration.

'merriment' and 'mighty monkey' are instantly classic vic songs. those who already like vic will enjoy this album, it's one of the better ones, very subdued vic, very piano, very mellow, sometimes very sad. some great vic melodies herein, even some beatles sounding background harmonies. great stuff, the one disappointment being that it's ten songs and only thirty minutes long. other than that, it's near perfect vic. another golden chesnutt if i may say.
