The Excitement Plan

Alt-country singer/songwriter Todd Snider populates his songs with characters as vivid as any you’ll find in prose, and The Excitement Plan offers some welcome new additions to his growing universe of ne’er-do-wells, well-meaning wastrels and disappointed dreamers. Along the way he serves up so many quotable lines that it’s tempting to dwell on their cleverness (from “Greencastle Blues”: The No. 1 symptom of heart disease is sudden death). But it’s the emotional core that matters most—the lovable losers that populate these 12 songs just want to live and let live, and have a little fun while they can.
