Reseña de álbum

Back after a much-too-long four-year absence — during which David Berman struggled with substance abuse, depression, and a suicide attempt — the Silver Jews return with Tanglewood Numbers, an album full of the wry, insightful storytelling for which the band is beloved, as well as some striking differences. The album's polished sound will come as something of a surprise to fans who have been around since the Starlite Walker days, as will Berman's urgent vocals on tracks like "Sometimes a Pony Gets Depressed." However, these changes work in the album's favor and give an anthemic heft to the most gripping moments, most of which are about confronting troubles and fears head-on: On the album's opening track, "Punks in the Beerlight"'s "burnouts in love" fight to stay that way even when it gets really, really bad; "There Is a Place" closes Tanglewood Numbers by moving from despair to hope with a thrilling, white-knuckle chant of "I saw God's shadow on this world." But, even on the album's most desperate, searching songs, Berman's unfailing eye for detail remains, and Tanglewood Numbers is populated with young black Santa Clauses, girls in special economic zones, and guys who work in airport bars. Funny couplets like "Sleeping Is the Only Love"'s "I heard they were taming the shrew/I heard the shrew was you" and lighter, more typically rollicking Silver Jews tracks such as "Animal Shapes" and "How Can I Love You if You Won't Lie Down" keep Tanglewood Numbers from sounding too much like a recovery journal (not to mention that Berman is too talented a writer to need to rely on strictly autobiographical subject matter). Nevertheless, the dark undercurrent that runs through the album makes sweet moments like these all the sweeter. Hopefully the circumstances around Tanglewood Numbers will never repeat themselves, but there's no denying that this is a uniquely powerful and moving set of songs.

the Good, the Great

Those familiar with David Berman's writing and music won't be surprised by the jarring insight, strange warmth, and dark, puzzling humor of his latest album, but they might be surprised by a few additions; the lovely, stubborn density of sounds (sometimes sort of orchestral, sometimes jangly, lots characterized by the type of hinged/unhinged sound people tend to remember fondly as rock), and the frequency of Cassie's vocals, which compliment the album to the nth-est degree. This album is worth every run-on sentence it'll inspire. "How Can I Love You If You Won't Lie Down" is a good place to start.

If Horse's Could Make You Think...

If you aren't familiar with the Silver Jews; let me be the first to tell you that Mr. Berman is a genius with words. Then, put him AND Stephen Malkmus in the same band and what you have is poetry to guitars, drums, and Bob Nastanovich. If you want to try out a couple songs a great place to start is How Can I love You If You Won't Lie Down or Sleeping is the Only Love. If you do like this, be sure to check out another great album by them, American Water. Also check out Stephen Malkmus's new album, Face the Truth, especially the song Freeze the Saints.

David Berman

Is a genius, everything he does turns to poetic gold! the Silver Jews are great, this cd is much more different from the previous ones because david berman attempted suicide before recording this album. Buy this cd and every other one you can get your hands on ESPECIALY AMERICAN WATER!!!!

A beautiful mess of indie rock, country-rock and lo-fi with lyrics both witty and profound, the Silver Jews were formed in 1989 by writer/musician David Berman with his friends, guitarist/singer Stephen Malkmus and drummer Bob Nastanovich. The trio performed together as Ectoslavia when they studied at the University of Virginia; after graduation, they moved to New York and shared an apartment. Dubbing themselves the Silver Jews — after the Silver Apples, the Silver Beatles, and slang for blonde-haired...
