Paul Westerberg -- Come Feel Me Tremble


Part of my 2003 Top Ten list as published by Neumu in January, 2004

Like Lou Reed in the early 1980s, Paul seems to have discovered what he wants to do with the rest of his life -- neither desecrate nor cling on to the memory of the raw life-changing band of his youth while releasing music that should appeal to its followers. On the DVD of the same name those followers return as much love as we can, hoping that heíll play "Answering Machine" one more time for us. And while "Answering Machine" ainít here, its spirit is. Whether heíll ever get any Honda commercials remains to be seen.
