We gave it an A

At first all you notice on Look Up is Neuwirth’s puny vocals — he makes guest Peter Case’s scrawny voice sound positively rich. Then you realize that every song is stuck in your mind. A wandering hipster for almost four decades, Neuwirth is one of America’s great undiscovered folk-music songwriters. His songs unfold with the inevitability of classics. Along with Case, Patti Smith and Butch Hancock are among the visitors.
