Its the season of melancholy, a time of dark nights and winter chill, the proper time to reflect on the human condition and Doug Paisley is here to assist you with that task. "Constant Companion" is the second album from the Toronto based singer songwriter and he has had the good sense in addition to bring in a cast of top notch musical collaborators such as Garth Hudson of The Band, Basil Donavon of Blue Rodeo, and the wonderful Canadian chanteuse Leslie Feist. Mojo argues that "Paisley's perspective is that of the Canadian outsider, seeing America anew whilst being fully immersed in its history and myths". There clearly is something to this as Canadians seem able to incorporate a sense of distance and to be able to strip the leaves from the North American tree and examine its roots with more critical care and depth.

Check out post haste the lovely duet "Dont make me wait" with Leslie Feist which harks back to simpler times and we may have found the new Neil Young and Joni Mitchell for the Twitter generation who nail this beautiful love lament. "What I saw" shows that Paisley has listened very carefully to "Harvest Moon" but in a respectful as opposed to copyist mode. It rolls alongs wonderfully and is a great soundtrack for sitting back and doing nothing at all. "End of the day" settles into this groove and has a warm vocal by Paisley which is supplemented by a trademark Garth Hudson organ solo. "Bluebird" adds more bite and evokes the great Will Oldham and the mood he captured on 2010 Cairo Gang collaboration. The wondrously melodic opener "No one but you" is more up tempo, while the long closer "Come here and love me" places him firmly in the ranks of great new emerging songwriters with a heartbreak love song that is probably the albums highlight.

Perhaps on times this album is a bit too comfortable and you sometimes long for a harder edge. Paisley's purpose however is evoke a mood of quiet reflection and overall he succeeds well in his ruminations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album 27 Sep 2011
By James
Format:Audio CD
I had never heard of Doug Paisley until I saw him at the End of the Road Festival. He was definitely one of the highlights there. He was an excellent, humorous and charming performer. On the back of that performance I bought this album. I wasn't disappointed. It is a great album with some truly superb songs such as "Come here my love" and "No one but you". If I have a complaint I think, as the previous reviewer suggested, a couple of songs can get a little slow and it would be nice to have one or two songs which had a little more "edge" or "spice". This is more than made up for by the vast majority of songs which are full of touching melancholy and perfect for a lazy, reflective afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets better with age 5 Dec 2013
By 11thman
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As 2013 comes to an end and the "best of" lists are in full flow the most exciting news is that a new Doug Paisley cd is coming out in January. This was an immediate favourite when I first heard it in 2010 and remains a regularly played CD. I have a feeling that sounding this warm and simple is not as simple as Mr Paisley makes it sound. The man should be a household name.

4.0 out of 5 stars gentle and dark 15 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Constant Companion Saw Doug at small venues in Ullapool and Aviemore-some of the best solo work I've witnessed for a long time,gentle sounding but with darker lyrics than you think at first. Just check the cover-unsettling,and read the brilliant Mojo review on Doug's website. Can't recommend this album highly enough,best bought from him next time he comes over,or from your nearest indie record shop.He reminds me of Tom Rush in his laid back vocals and his guitar mastery,or Bobby Charles, So don't worry that it's so easy to listen to and do worry about the difficulties of being human while listening to the words...
