Clocking in a just less than twenty minutes, At The Organ comes galloping out the gate and fully describes Scott McCaughey's always unfolding powers. The Minus 5's shifting personnel base finds him teamed up with Wilco, with whom he created the delightfully titled Down With Wilco last year. In a sort of inverse of his earlier and other band, Young Fresh Fellows, The Minus 5 exist as a fully rocking studio enterprise that can spring to life in performance on rare occasions as well. "One More Bottle To Go" is the sound of the recording process itself having a perfect and pronounced effect on the final results, but at the same time packing a nicely centered wallop. As always, deeper listening is rewarded with head-turning surprise and all manner of alluring satisfaction. --David Greenberger

"I got the Minus 5 album "Down with Wilco" because of the Wilco affiliation. And it suprised me most pleasantly, it was a great funky pop record with intruiging instrumentation.
"At the Organ" is more of the same, since it comes more or less from the same session. "Formerly Hail Centurion" is especially nice (this song previously appeared on the LP version of "Down"). There's also a fun version of "The Days of Wine and Booze" and a dual guitarr attack rendition of "Groove Supply".
If you have and like "Down", get this. If you're thinking about getting this, get "Down" first.
