Some are cynical, some mean and sarcastic, many almost painfully revealing, and all of them are just plain great: funny, clever and ruthlessly honest. Wainwright writes intensely personal songs, and still they reflect universal experiences. Everyone has bought that "Bill of Goods" sometime in their lives, "Your Father's Car" is advice that everyone wishes they had known when they were twenty years old, and nothing captures the holiday spirit quite as well as "Thanksgiving." You will not be sorry you bought this CD.
As part of the canon, it marks (in my mind) the beginning of LW3's master status. The singer-songwriter's work is good prior to this (if uneven) but after this (with the albums "History", "Grown Man" and "Little Ship") you have a body of work that is close to perfection.
