4.0 out of 5 stars Typical recent, rocky, Harper with very thoughtful lyrics., 3 Oct 2000
This review is from: The Dream Society (Audio CD)
The Dream Society is very typical of recent Harper in that it sounds more rocky than folky and has abandoned some of Harpers unusual guitar work for a slightly more traditional style. Where it excels however is in the deeply personal, poetic and thought-provoking quality of it's lyrics which are above and beyond even Harper's usual high standards in this department. He remains one of the great unsung geniuses of UK music.
The whole album is well worth hearing, but it's opening two and closing two tracks stand out. The first two, 'songs of love 1 and 2', are an insightful commentary of love and commitment, which happily manage to avoid most of the cliches that cling to those topics, back by some stonkingly good music. The penultimate track, 'Broken Wing' is probably the most emotive song with it's soaring guitar melodies and wistful lyrics. The final track, 'These Fifty Years' is a 15 minute epic in which Roy, God and Thomas Huxley argue about the nature of religion to a background of wildly varying music, reminiscent of Dylan in his 'band' days. It's clever, insightful and probably the best track on offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Return, 11 Dec 2007
By 
This review is from: The Dream Society (Audio CD)
Ilove this album. Have been a fan of RH for more years than I want to admit. Love this album for what appears to be an autobiography of the artist at times. Psycopath is the most commercial track and Drugs for everyone appealing to the lighter side of RH but every track to me is worth alisten. If you like folk/rock give this album a shot.
