Second best Silver Jews album after Natural Bridge, RIP

4.5 superbtom79 | July 18th 19

The album I had absolutely no idea was happening but the album I very much needed. David
Berman is back and on top of his game. The masterful songwriter returns to familiar but
rejuvenated thematic territory - songs soaked with solitary self-reflection, penned with
his trademark black humor and wit; the perfect soundtrack to wandering unfamiliar streets
by yourself in a foreign country, to sitting at a bar nearing closing time, contemplating
making that phone call but ultimately deciding against it, to writing in a cheap motel room
but scrapping everything and going to bed, unsatisfied but not defeated.

Best album from David Berman in a long time, maybe since Bright Flight or even American Water, and a hell of a way to close out his career. RIP

I don't know anything about Dave Berman, but I know Purple Mountains' backing band, Woods. It's thus no surprise that, musically, it tackles alt-country tropes, with as much folk as rock. Lyrically, well, this is heavy as shit. Please warn me when a happy country record is out y'all. Still, the music is generally upbeat, but do not mask how much pain is poured in the lyrics. RIP. 3.8

Purple Mountains is a very good album, it presents a set of beautiful folk songs, all with a particularity. You shouldn't rely on a first listening that gives a good result but nothing more, because in the line of listening you will attach yourself to each of the tracks. Sometimes you will let yourself be invaded by instrumental solos, sometimes by medolies, sometimes by texts, sometimes you will take everything for yourself
