New Review - Loudon Wainwright's "Strange Weirdos"

There's a new review up for your reading pleasure: Strange Weirdos: Music from and Inspired by the Film Knocked Up. I rarely review a completely song-driven score since such efforts are usually tangentially related to the films they accompany. I'm sure you can think of myriad examples where the music on those albums never appears in the film itself. But with Strange Weirdos, Wainwright has crafted a musical analog to the film's atmosphere. It is gently mocking, bitingly sentimental, and a welcome rebuttal to "Music Inspired By" scores.
