The title of this Loudon Wainwright album refers not to a look back at the singer/songwriter's career, but to his own life, a place that has proven a rich source for some of Wainwrigth's finest material over the years. "The Picture" examines the way that the passage of time has affected his own family. "Hitting You" is a chilling recollection of an incident in which Wainwright struck one of his children in a rash fit of anger. That the incident has remained so vivid is a testament his continued undiminished self-disgust over a moment that took place decades prior. Wainwright captures a sense of our common humanity in both that moment and the enduring memory. "Talking New Bob Dylan" takes a typically humorous look at the fact that Wainwright was branded a "new Bob Dylan" when he emerged around 1970 (a fate which befell scores of guitar-toting male singer/songwriters at the time).
