If you love Loudon, you will love, adore, cherish this album. Over the years, it has given me many hours of happiness, laughter, humming, solace, and warmth. Buy it; if you're a LWIII fan, you will NOT regret it.

This was the first Loudon Wainwright album I heard, and it's still my favourite. The lyrics are bittersweet and often hilarious, the music is good if simple, and the bassline on the first track (Hard Day on the Planet) is great.
Other LWIII albums can get a bit noisy, and the lyrics a little too self-obsessed, but this one strikes a good balance. Very few duff songs.

From Woodstock as a Bob Dylan look-alike until now, the years haven't hurt him. Live or on CD his haunting songs stay with us. This one is among the most haunting. But of course, I'm prejudiced. I've sat in the audience of many of his performances in major US cities with a hundred other of his fans wondering why there weren't more (but glad there weren't for personal, selfish reasons). His audiences comprise a surprising span of old fogies such as myself and young people who think they discovered him.
Loudon's as good on this one as he gets (and that's good).

This Album followed the good "Fame and Wealth" and was followed by "Therapy", the first of a long, unbroken string of incredible recordings. It's damn good. Damn, damn good. The productions are in-hand--no sloppy, overdone nonsense here--and the album almost has the kind of consistent "shape and feel" that the later ones would.
It's easier to point out the one song that's sort of jarring and more "old-school" Loudon: The harsh "Man's World". Loudon is so good at communicating contempt in his songs when he feels it, it can be uncomfortable to listen to.
Otherwise, this is an upbeat album. "A Hard Day On The Planet", for all its nihilism, is bursting with humorous energy. "Synchronicity" tackles the embarrassing and amusing social awkwardness that comes from discovering the girl you're hitting on is a lesbian. Other funny, upbeat songs on the album are the anthem to the solo-diners, "I Eat Out", "No" (about the futility of resisting strong-minded women), "The Acid Song" (self-explanatory), "Vampire Blues" (also self-explanatory), the gentle, self-mocking "Expatriate", and "Back Nine", which applies a sort-of slave-labor mentality to golfing (something which should have been done a long time ago).
This is a happy album, really. And as much as I love Loudon's new stuff, I would like to see him get (emotionally, as an artist) to a place where he could do something similar again.
The less-than-happy songs are mostly standouts, too:
"Your Mother and I" is a classic, and probably should be required listening for any child whose parents are divorcing.
"The Home Stretch" is the other rough spot on the album.

MORE LOVE SONGS is one of the very best 80's Loudon Wainwright
albums I think. Great balance of witty songs like "Synchronicity" or "No" & touching ones like "Your Mother
& I" or "Unhappy Anniversary." Also 'bonus' of stellar help from a bunch of English folk musicians like Richard Thompson,
John Kirkpatrick & Danny Thompson. Only the 'kvetchy' near-
protest song "Hard Day on the Planet" doesn't quite measure
up IMO. He has other great ones, esp. in the '90's, but this
is really very good I think.
