Therapy Review

by Tim Sheridan

Loudon Wainwright's move to a major label found him writing at the peak of his abilities. From start to finish there is not a weak song on Therapy, with off-the-wall advice ("Your Father's Car") and insights on the nature of fame ("Harry's Wall"). But perhaps the most insightful and painful tune is "Thanksgiving," where Wainwright relates the pitfalls of this universally complicated celebration. Great stuff.
