Bright Flight by Silver Jews (2001) Drag City Records. 

Silver Jews country influences and abstract poetry combine and really shine on Bright Flight.  After the release of this record though the wheels really came off for David Berman (drugs, suicide attempt).  Sometimes though incredible pain and personal strife can make for incredible music.  Thank goodness he got his shit together.  I hate seeing musical geniuses go before their time.
