iTunes Review

Former Soul Coughing leader Mike Doughty has been exorcising his demons for years. With the crowd-funded Stellar Motel, he’s finally beyond re-casting his Soul Coughing tunes for his audience’s sake and focusing on new tracks for his own pleasure. Working with producer DJ Good Goose, who’s worked with Doughty in varying capacities in the past, there are touches of hip hop tossed in throughout the album, while Doughty’s straight-ahead pop songs also cruise past as always. “When the Night Is Long” sounds like another classic Doughty tune, while tunes like “Oh My God Yeah F*** It,” featuring Moon Hooch & Miss Eaves, “Let Me Lie" (featuring Big Dipper), and “Let’s Go to the Motherf*****g Movies” all make use of hip-hop, with and without special guests. Doughty’s best at his most melodic; the simpler pop moves of “When You Come Home” and “The Brightness” (which features hip-hop elements) prove he hasn’t lost his touch.

The most ignorant Editor's Notes ever?

This is a fine album, but can iTunes *please* delete the "Editor's Note" for it and assign it to somebody who isn't brain damaged? To say that Doughty has spent his solo career reworking Soul Coughing tunes is just hair-pullingly ignorant. Yes, Doughty did that in 1 of his dozen solo albums -- the last one -- but all the others have been as far from Soul Coughing as he could get.

Everybody knows this. Even people who have barely heard of Doughty knows this. Under what rock did iTunes find this writer?

Too much rap

I've been a fan of Doughty since the beginning of Soul Coughing and still as a solo artist but for me there is too much rap here. The songs that are all Mike I would give a 4 star rating but the raps featuring different artists are not for me.

Mostly awesome

70% of this album is awesome, but a few of the songs are just garbage- The Rappy ones are lame, and the repetitive ones are just terrible. I'd be happy if I never heard them again - I think he barely tried for half the album. I can't believe people think this is a great album

Before emerging as a solo artist, Mike Doughty (known as M. Doughty during the early stages of his career) was best known as the frontman of the unique avant-garde group Soul Coughing. Formed in 1992, Soul Coughing took shape after Doughty met Yuval Gabay, Sebastian Steinberg, and Mark de Gli Antoni while working as a doorman at the Knitting Factory, a staple of New York City's underground music scene. The four musicians signed with Slash/Warner Bros. in 1993 after making a name for themselves on...
