...  JEFFREY LEWIS The Last Time I Did Acid I Went Insane (Rough Trade/Sanctuary) If Woody Guthrie were a painfully self-doubting wiseass lamenting his shortcomings in the success-obsessed playground of 21st-century New York City, he probably wouldn't sound half as brazen or hilarious or heartbreaking as this lo-fi folk joker. If the number about decomposing into East River scum with That Special Someone doesn't get to you, try "The Chelsea Hotel Oral Sex Song," a cry-in-your-Snapple ballad about his inability to score with a comely girl while discussing Leonard Cohen that turns into a poignant meditation on love songs. FOLK WISDOM According to the title track, the Seventh Rule of LSD says never "look too deep into your soul, or you might find a hideous hopeless hole." B+ -------------

Jeff originated the role of Eric in The Eleventh Hour.   Click here for its pictures page.
