Older Than My Old Man Now

Loudon Wainwright III’s 22nd album extends the folk-rock autobiography that's made his body of work so impressive. It's a saga filled with Oedipal tension (his dad was a famed journalist, his son is Rufus Wainwright) and fraught love (ex-wives Kate McGarrigle and Suzzy Roche are folk icons)."The Days That We Die," featuring a passage written by his father with Rufus on vocals, and "I Remember Sex" captures the emotional range – from heart aching reflection to wry acceptance. It's riveting stuff; here's hoping the story doesn’t end for a long time.
