What can I say: heartfelt, inspiring and loose. This is the sound of disintegration, for the man was troubled, but aren't we all????
If you're wondering whether to buy this album, listen to the clip of track 1 above and hear THAT lead guitar break. This is a must have. Please also buy 'Third/Sister lovers' by Big Star. Music is not made this good anymore. Some of the inspired guitar and keyboard breaks are beautiful.
If I had to choose how to describe the sound it would be Radiohead crossed with early era Neil Young and The Band circa 'Music From The Big Pink'. Oh, and 'Look Up' and 'Though I know She Lies' are two of the most beautiful, emotional and heartfelt ballads ever. Please, we all have to make decisions when buying music. With all my heart, please, I urge you to buy this majestic record. You, like me will miss out on some classic albums because of money restrictions or not being aware of their existance. Do not let this album slip by.
This is one of those records you can not help but become emotionally linked with. Listen for the awesome guitar on 'I got Kinda Lost' or the classic rock'n'roll of 'I don't Know'. This album has musical cousins in 'The Velvet Underground and Nico' and Neil Young's 'Rust Never Sleeps'.
This record is quite simply one of the most exceptional albums on the market. Appealing to both lovers of classic rock and Lennon-esque ballads, I am the Cosmos contains music that fans of all genres can both relate to and recognise and flawless.
Quite often, music magazines publish polls of the greatest albums ever made. This leads to albums such as Revolver, Exile on Main Street, London Calling and Dark Side of the Moon consistantly filling the upper placings in such lists. Never will you see I am the Cosmos nominated. Those who here this album are often left wondering why.
If you only buy one album this year then forget the overrated offerings of 2004. Even forget the classics. Purchase this and enjoy a tragically overlooked, faultless example of songwriting at its best
