paul westerberg - we may be the ones

Paul Westerberg's Stereo/Mono double album is probably my favorite of his solo career -- it was recorded in his basement, and it sounds like a guy who's had it with the music business and just wants to do his own things all by himself. Themes of domestic bliss and bitter resignation go hand in hand on the collection, and it all comes to a head on "We May Be the Ones," which Westerberg did appropriately raggedy on Conan O'Brien's show.
