American Music Club: Love Songs for Patriots
Buy! - (Merge)
Back together for the first time in 10 years, AMC pick up right where they left off with this predominately bleak album that weaves together strands of rock, folk, jazz and more into songs that are occasionally intense and discordant, but more often shimmer with understated beauty. AMC frontman Mark Eitzel contributed some typically heartbreaking love songs to the album, but there’s also a much stronger political bent to his songwriting this time around, and he aims a number of acid lyrics at the current administration. 9/27/2004 - Don Yates
