There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Just one voice, one guitar, and a worldview that should at least challenge yours. Elements of faith, doubt, anger, sadness, and wonder all woven together. The album is raw and fresh, and it's amazing to me that after forty years making music that Bruce sounds fresher and fresher.
Stripped down live acoustic sets catch Bruce unguarded, funny, thoughtful, brilliant. Intricate guitar solos mesmerize and make you wonder how he does it--sounds like three guitars, not one.
His lyrics are sometimes acerbic, often byzantine--but always challenging, and just pure poetry. Bought this sometime ago but just getting around to reviewing it. I thought I had done it already. I make it a point to get all of Bruce Cockburn's releases. He is political but it is the stories he weaves with his music and lyrics that capture you and make you want to listen. As I have said in another review of a release of his, it is on my bucket list to see him in concert.
I may have to go to Canada to do it, but so what? It will be worth the trip. I am, as you may have guessed by now, a Bruce Cockburn fan. I have always bought his albums since. I found the album Speechless, a collection of his guitar instrumentals, to be amazing, and I still love it, but I guess his best work features his voice which is compelling and entrancing, much like John Prine.
He is always highly original and very satisfactory. Please buy this album so he will make more for me to buy and lsiten to. Lovers In a Dangerous Time Live. Pacing the Cage Live.

Bruce's handling of his axe is so delicate and complex that he lacks not a moment for magical sounds, feathering his distinctive voice in an atmospheric rainbow of sparkling glints.
