Format: Audio CD
Cass McCombs new release 'Humor Risk' is one of those albums made of
all good meat; no waste, no fat, no gristle (just like one of Mrs Wolf's
rabbit pies!) That he is a very fine songwriter has already been well
demonstrated on his previous five albums (Karen Black's keening turn on
'Dreams-Come-True-Girl' from his 2009 recording 'Catacombs' will forever
bring a smile to my face!) and this collection of eight songs proves
to be no exception to the rule. It is, perhaps, his best work to date.

Listening to a number as simply beautiful as 'The Living Word', with its
delicately hushed vocal performance and truly enchanting melody, its hard
not to think that he is among the finest performers currently making music
on the other side of the big, grey Atlantic pond. It is a gem of a song.
The delightful 'Robin Egg Blue', too, achieves much through its simple but
solid rhythmic structure and charmingly pictorial lyrics. There is a hugely
satisfying degree of light and shade in the collection. 'Love Thine Enemy'
is a terrific opener; the rock-solid beat and grinding guitar supporting a
fine vocal from Mr McComb and the disconcerting sonic intrusions adding
yet another layer of interest. At nearly eight minutes and in other hands
'Mystery Mail' might have overstayed its welcome but here, with its Velvet-ish
four-square central chord sequence I was more than happy to stay in its
company until the end. The well-structured near-emptiness of 'To Every Man
His Chimera', too, takes its time to make a powerfully emotional statement.
'The Same Thing' is a no-frills highlight; high on reverb, rich in moody
harmony, it is one of Mr McCombs' finest compositions to date and final
track 'Mariah', with its curious plinkety-plonkety, accompaniment is a joy!

Hit the re-play button, lay back and enjoy!

Highly Recommended.

I bought this album expecting not to love it. How wrong was i. The Living Word is great. The lyrics are captivating and each song seems to have about 5 verses! I didn't love his last album but i'm glad to say this one is much better.
