The first Damon & Naomi LP since the demise of Galaxie 500, More Sad Hits is the duo's strongest effort, although it pales in comparison to the greatness of their former band. In fact, this gauzy LP even fails to measure up to the gorgeous self-titled EP that Damon & Naomi previously released under the name Pierre Etoile, which featured the superb "This Car Climbed Mt. Washington" (of which a less-inspired remake appears here). While far too self-consciously arty for its own good, More Sad Hits does contain a few lovely moments. Chief among them are the hypnotic "Little Red Record Co.," and an inspired cover of the Soft Machine's "Moments."
