This is a major work of literacy, intelligence, emotion and humility served with large dollops of humor. He tackles adult themes with wit, charm, and his most dazzling lyrics ever. While some of the songs are simpler in nature, most exhibit this kind of intelligent wordplay that’s advanced even by Lou‘s normal high standards. Along with his tribute album to Andy Warhol (the John Cale collaboration “Songs For Drella”), this is his most heartfelt recording. Like Graham Parker‘s ‘Struck By Lightning’ album, which announced the arrival of Parker growing up and contemplating adult themes, this is Lou‘s belated “coming of age” album.
