5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Masterpiece, 12 Nov 2007
This review is from: The Pretender (International Release) (Audio CD)
Released shortly after his first wifes suicide this dark masterpiece is tinged with genius and sadness. A self examination of a man who sounds to me to be at breaking point. It kicks off with "The Fuse", an embittered prayer reminding us of the fragility of life and what lies ahead. Followed by the hollow optimism of your bright baby blues, we are soon back to rock bottom with "Here come those tears again", co-written by his first wife's mother a model of how to exercise grief. Move quickly through the "only child" and "Daddy's Tune" to "Sleeps Dark and Silent Gate" which sails magnificently on to the title track "The Pretender"back from the depths to some hope and optimism. I love this album, however, when ever I play it, my life's not where I wish it was, but its the best album to help drag you out of the hopelessness.
