Yo La Tengo

Prisoners of Love

(Matador; 2005) Looking for love this winter? Do yourself a favor and pick up Yo La Tengo’s 3-CD box set, Prisoners Of Love. You may not find love within, but you will find guitars that drone tunefully and vocals that yearn endlessly. You’ll also be surprised at the consistently high quality of the work, even on the rarities disk. And for the liner notes aficionado, this box is a thrill, featuring notes that are honest, personal, and funny. All in all, the entire set is a gem. Catch up with one of New Jersey’s best kept secrets: YLT.
