The Devil You Know

Oregon-born Todd perfected his style and persona on 2004’s East Nashville Skyline—part country, part rock, part talking blues, all hyperliterate, laugh-out-loud funny songs about sad-sack losers trying to get ahead in a world that refuses to cut them any slack. The Devil You Know doesn’t expand much on the Skyline template, which is fine and dandy when the songs are top-shelf Todd Snider gems like these. With an unerring eye for detail and dialogue, a wry sense of humor, a lovably loose-limbed sound and a healthy dose of middle-finger attitude, Devil is a devilishly good time.
