10. Trust (2002)

While working with esteemed producer Tchad Blake certainly added a sheen to Low’s sound, it also ratcheted up both the volume and self-indulgence. Numbers such as the anthemic, infectious “Last Snowstorm Of The Year,” the deceptively lithe “La La La Song,” and the sepulchral “Shots And Ladders” work. Yet the turgid “The Lamb” and “John Prine” fall flat, in desperate need of edits. The album foreshadows other dalliances with harder-edged pop music which loomed in the near future for the band, particularly on the fuzz-bass laden rave-up “Canada.”
