Tom Verlaine

"Documentary" (Drag City)

When this ex-Television member tries to test the limits of his limited singing voice, the results suggest an unfortunately overambitious Lou Reed. On "Documentary" the manic-depressive, seesawing melody — low-slung, swampy blues shot through intermittently with engaging bursts of sunshine buoyancy — compensates for Verlaine's inelegant warble and penchant for cryptic bon mots.
