I see it as Chapter 2 to That's How We Do It in L.A. A commentary on fame but for This Is The Time about being in FM in particular.

I brought the disc home, played it, and within the first four seconds I was hooked. I couldn’t believe how good it was!

It still blows me away. Law and Order remains my favorite, and Gift of Screws has its moments, but OOTC is, as you all have mentioned, his greatest achievement.
You have great taste. Law and Order is so f*cking weird, but I think it was released so soon after Tusk, that the weirdness didn't bother me. It's WHY I love it.

There’s a zany energy there that’s so genuine. You can hear the fun he had while making it. His songs on Go Insane and Tango are brainier, more self-conscious—and it sounds like he’s out to prove his genius. But on Law and Order he was just enjoying his freedom.

OOTC is a crisp, finely tuned, twinkling feast, but for me his greatest body of work is the batch he did after OOTC, the tracks released in bootleg form, the "Anne Heche album" if you will. Red Rover, Down On Rodeo, Wait For You (as it would eventually be called), Try For The Sun (a cover, but still), Murrow, Change Your Mind, Come, Say Goodbye. I know it doesn't count as we're talking about officially released albums, but this is the Lindsey musical era that blows me away.

So true. He CLEARLY didn't gaf about numbers, after 6 years of FM. And I love it for that. It's so free.

Mary Lee Jones for the win.

I need to make a new car cd in the morning.....
