August and Everything After.

"I want to be Bob Dylan!" Adam Duritz of Berkeley admits two-thirds of the way through this irresistibly desperate, demented song about stardom, a song that could be about almost anything else--the emotion is that loose, that confused. As for Mr. Jones, presumably the same one Dylan was after in "Ballad of a Thin Man," he doesn't seem like anyone to be trusted, though the singer does trust him, which means the trouble the music constantly suggests on this track ought to pay off elsewhere on the album, which it doesn't.
