The Minus Five: The Minus Five
Buy! - (Yep Roc)
It might seem strange the 7th album from this indie power-pop project led by Seattle’s Scott McCaughey is self-titled – until you hear it. McCaughey’s put together one of his very best batches of songs, creating what's likely to be the definitive Minus 5 album. A strong supporting cast helps out, including Colin Meloy of the Decemberists, REM’s Peter Buck, Jeff Tweedy and other members of Wilco, John Wesley Harding, Kelly Hogan, John Ramberg, Harvey Danger’s Sean Nelson and many more, but this is McCaughey’s show, and he’s at the top of his game here. 1/25/2006 - Don Yates
