Ah...well we thought this might be back in stock this week. Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea was the final Silver Jews album before David Berman disbanded the group for the unusual reason that his musical output could never undo the damage his dad (a corporate lawyer) had done to the world. It's probably the Jews most polished record and sees Berman's distinctive baritone sitting on top of lush country-ish arrangements. Album highlight San Francisco DC is a hilarious seven minute narrative that is not to be missed.

Suffering Jukebox is the outstanding track on the album. Cassie Berman's vocals are delicious on the refrain. The production is crisp throughout. The opening song What is not but could be if sounds contrived. If I had heard this instead of Suffering Jukebox I would have held onto my money. He just seems to be fitting words into a melody. He sounds like Johnny Cash. Very sweet guitar work throughout. The return of Tin Pan Alley!
