The Books' fourth album and first full-length in five years finds their knack for finding strange and wondrous samples intact. The Books have a terrific sense of humor- and it makes The Way Out, an album built on eccentric vocal samples, a good-natured discovery instead of a cheap piece of mockery. You find yourself engrossed with people who are alien but also familiar

Though there is sadness in both of these cuts, it is the kind of sadness you don’t mind revisiting. It is the type of melancholy that lets you know you are alive and lets you know that other people are in the same boat of emotion with you. These songs are neccessary to view The Way Out as an overall success.

The Books began working on The Way Out in late 2008. Zammuto spoke of the album's New Age themes in an interview in April 2009, saying they took samples from self-help and hypnotherapy cassettes. When asked to describe the album, Zammuto said "You're getting verrry sleepy. On April 5, 2010, the duo announced that The Way Out would be released through Temporary Residence Limited in July.
