If there's one thing Mr. Trouble offers, it's less of the mellow bluesy/jazzy sound he's settled into, in his older age, and more of a return to his satiric, pulp roots of troubled American lives, set to the swinging and swaying, jumbling tunes he's still typically known for.

That said the tracks are rather ordinary and predictable, where I liken him to an aging Frank Black (of Pixies fame), a great song-writer with a long history of great music both as a part of a band and a solo artist, but someone who settles for predictability and remaining in-character at the cost of advancing his artistic expression, as he gets older.

The title track and Drowning Man stand out, and the other 4 tracks are all solid in a "pleasantly listenable" sense. "Gone Down Underground" might be my favorite track, a story of a woman who's a victim of the home foreclosure crisis, who heads to Mexico to start a new life in order to avoid the resulting financial slavery of modern American life.

For Stan Ridgway fans, you can't help but to recommend this "EP," the live tracks are interesting enough, offering excellent "unplugged" takes on some of his most popular songs, but remember there are only 6 new songs.

Ultimately it's some of his best stuff in years, it's just fleeting and brief, a bit too ordinary for his abilities most of the time, but as always, very solid and enjoyable music...due mainly to his ability to write great lyrics and craft songs like a pro, no matter how comfortable he's gotten doing it.

Just The Drowning Man and Mr. Trouble alone are worth the ride. The interplay of the Violin by Lazlo Vickers and Saxophone of Ralph Carney on The Drowning Man are pure genius. I suppose this is a rhetorical song as I don't believe any one has the answers to the questions Mr. Ridgway poses. Juxtapose the tenderness of The Drowning Man with the gritty driving blues of Mr. Trouble and you have the quintessential Ridgway. Gone Deep Underground is a snappy foot tapper with some neat keyboards by Pietra Wexstun. Before Stan goes into the 4 live tracks, he closes with We Never Close and you see Stan's well is far from dried up. The live tracks will give the uninitiated a good sense of what Stan and his fantastic band sound like live. The musicianship and song writing on this release are superb.

Format: Audio CD
The first six songs on this CD are new, and all of them are top-notch ballads and/or toe-tap Ridgway numbers. The final four are excellent, clear, "live" recordings of songs from earlier CDs. Two of the "live" songs are particular favorites of mine, "Afghan Forklift" and "Turn a Blind Eye." The final "live" number is a gentle rendition of Stan's #1 hit in the U.K., "Camouflage". The "live" recording is excellent and free of audience noise during the actual performance. Really good stuff and a "must" for Ridgway fans.
