The Jews were excellent as long as Malkmus was involved, so more or less, their last good LP was Amercan Water, the rest was kind of tasteless and boring, both musically and lyrically. My opinion anyway.

iirc, steve had nothing to do w/ _the natural bridge_. which was a great record.

and "people" on _american water_ is easily the worst song on there.

I think last year's release is excellent.

i think the silver jews were a great band. I love this band. Saw them in orlando back in september, and I agree, Berman's presence was very "dont want to be here" but i thought there was something more to it than that. Its not like you can jump around on stage and get people moshing to the music...

I'm disappointed by this news, but i agree with Berman about stopping before another "shiny happy people" incident happened.
