What I'm listening to: Whiskeytown's Pneumonia

Pneumonia was the third and final album produced by Whiskeytown, which was the alt-country version of the 1994-2001 Cleveland Indians, a collection of talented, sometimes troubled all-stars that never quite put it all together, but were fun as hell to watch. Like that Indians team, Whiskeytown ultimately had to be destroyed for the good of the franchise. The franchise, in this case, was singer/songwriter Ryan Adams.
