Shadow Of His Former Self
Crazy Rhythms by The Feelies is one of the greatest albums of all time. The follow ups were fine but the returns diminished pretty sharply. I was excited to see this hear and gave it a very real chance but he just seems on autopilot. The songs go by in a fairly pleasant manner and then they're gone. Not compelled to keep listening. Just as nothing The Strokes have done after Is This It? (either as a band or solo projects) has lived up to that amazing debut, Mercer is haunted by his explosive early success.
