#14 of 2008: Silver Jews - Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea

Thirty-Two Words: David Berman does his best Johnny Cash impersonation on his most sobering release to date. Past Silver Jews' records were drug- and depression-fueled gems. This album finds Berman at his most polished.

The Moment of Truth: As is usual for a Silver Jews record, one line does it for me...

Romance is the douche of the bourgeoisie.
Killer to Filler Ratio: 7:3
