VARIOUS ARTISTS: The State I'm In: CD

Jan 14, 2010

Well, no matter what you may think of the music, Crafty Records should get a gold star and a piece of candy for the packaging alone: The State I’m In comes in a license plate sleeve. Yep, the CD’s actually packaged in half of a Missouri license plate. Goddamn. As far as the actual album, it’s a nice mix of acoustic and low-intensity electric numbers. Folks like Wingnut Dishwashers Union, Mischief Brew, The Sweet Ones, and Chris Clavin all make appearances, and while it may seem a little thin on content with only eleven songs, they’re all pretty solid tracks. Sure, The Stick Martin Show’s “The Tail of Captain McNail” sounds suspiciously like Billy Joel’s “Piano Man,” but c’mon… it’s packaged in a fucking license plate.
