I don't listen to this kind of music too often, as I like my music a little harder. However, I've owned Marc Cohns self-titled debut album for years now and have listened to it pretty regularly over the years. I was doing just that the other day, when I decided on an impulse to log on to amazon and buy this album. I'm not disappointed that I did so.
The first track Already Home sets the standard right at the outset with its opening guitar lick, and combines Cohns great baritone nicely with the horn stack. The ballads are where Cohn stands out, Girl of Mysterious Sorrow is haunting. As is Healing Hands which is apparently off some episode or the other of Dawsons Creek. The finale Ellis Island sounds like something that Springsteen would do, only Cohns vocals are so much better.
The other tracks on the album are pretty good to. All in all, good easy listening. The only bad point being the opening to Lost you in the Canyon... its completely out of character with the rest of the album.

I wanted to expand the music I have of Marc Cohen and while this is good, it never reaches the heights of other albums. To be honest there were a few that seemed to be so much like others that I have already heard.
The outstanding track for me is Ellis Island because the lyrics are haunting along with the melody but this is where I feel let down, I expected more and there was just more of the same.
Pity!

Another album that is as good as the two preceding ones. It has the usual moving piano playing, amazing voice and lyrics. 'Already home' is particularly outstanding, but the whole album is brilliant. Marc cohn's music seems to have the ability to move you or be applicable to any given moment in your life and as such each album can be played again and again. Easily as good as his other work and a great album to add to your collection. Highly recommended album from an underrated artist.

"Already Home" is incredibly catchy and just a great opening song, full of life. One of those songs you'd happily drive along to on a sunny day.

"Girl of Mysterious Sorrow" starts with a simple driving rhythm, steel strung guitar building to a wider sound, drums and organ. It ebbs and flows nicely.

"Providence" is another stand-out for me, simple melody matched with Marc's gritty vocals - electric guitar, electric and acoustic piano and some very nice backing harmonies.

"Healing Hands" is a soulful and gentle tune - perhaps some of the phrases are a little cliched, but it is soothing and has some nice instrumentation and even some sneaky strings in the background.

"Lost you in the canyon" maybe is a bit different (as mentioned in other reviews) - it sounds like a Tom Petty take-off - but heck, I like Tom and it's not a bad song at all, it maybe doesn't sit as comfortably as it might in the running order.

"Saints preserve us" - gentle descending chords on the piano, a mournful marching rhythm. It's a story of grief but it just seems a bit overwrought for my tastes.

"Olana" - this picks up nicely, gentle organ, another simple beat and Marc's voice. The instrumentation is simple but it's nice to hear fragments of horns and strings and a muted piano - the overall effect is pleasant and flows nicely.

"Turn to me" - this first struck me as sounding like an Aimee Mann sort of song, the instrumentation and melody sounded very reminiscent. Again, Marc's vocals strays a little into Tom Petty territory. Another good upbeat number.

"Valley of the Kings" - I don't like this one particularly, it's got an Indian feel - maybe he'd been listening to Kula Shaker or something.
