|Song: "Think About Your Troubles"|
Artist: Mutual Admiration Society
Recorded/Published: July 13, 2004Mutual Admiration Society, a collaboration between former Toad the Wet Sprocket's front man Glen Phillips and Nickel Creek (Sean Watkins, Sara Watkins, and Chris Thile), recorded "Think About Your Troubles" for their album called Mutual Admiration Society.
Only the Mutual Admiration Society's final track, a winking cover of Harry Nilsson's "Think About Your Troubles", truly comes alive. The band turns the song - a wry, convoluted story about self-pity - into a scrappy shuffle. The song fades out, then fades back in to a furious mandolin solo from Nickel Creek's Chris Thile. This inspired bit of playing is exactly what the other songs needed, but as great as it is, it's too little too late. -- Chris Lorraine (Seattle Weekly, July 21 - 27, 2004).
