Robust of voice and compositional style
Grant-Lee Phillips' new collection of 12 songs
makes a solid statement deserving of our attention.
Whether rough and raunchy, as in opening track
'Good Morning Happiness' (a fine song which would
not have sounded out of place in late 60's London),
or whimsical and breezy on the lovely title track
'Little Moon', Mr Phillips is in full command of his
medium and materials.
The ensemble he has gathered around him serves
the project well. The brass arrangement on 'It Ain't
The Same Old Cold War Harry' (substantially
the work of Jason Thor) is a particular delight.
'Nightbird' is an especially lovely song.
The gently rolling laconic melody displays the best
of Mr Phillips vocal abilities. It is a voice which
has no need of flashy artifice to make its mark.
It is a simple and effective instrument, fully able
to communicate a wide range of emotional expression.
'Violet', too, is another beautiful example of craft
and economy. The string quartet delivers sensitive support
both here and on the fragile and evocative composition
'Older Now', arguably the album's finest moment.
Final track 'The Sun Shines On Jupiter' is a
nicely silly seaside picture postcard with a
surreal astronomical flavour. The outro is daft
as a brush in the nicest possible way !
Big, open-hearted music to make you smile.
The title track is a gentle, beguiling, charming piece of work, crooned impeccably by Grant-Lee and embellished with caressing piano flourishes and tasteful strings. My favourite track on the album has to be the magnificent "It Ain't The Same Old Cold War Harry", a good old brass-soaked stomper decrying the old, familiar, scare-tactics, reactionary politics rearing its head in today's USA. "Seal It With A Kiss" is another perfect slice of gentle, accessible folk-rock and features a particularly lovely ending. The stately grandeur of "Nightbirds" and the genuinely emotionally affecting "Violet", a lovely track about Grant's daughter, are no exception to the high quality of material on this album.Read more ›
The album can be split into 2 sides with the first part containing great upbeat pop songs such as 'Good morning happiness' and 'It ain't the Same Old Cold War Harry.' The second part contains slower songs exhibiting his exceptional voice including the brilliant 'Older now' and 'Blind Tom.' G.L.P continues to write exceptional lyrics along with perfectly layering his music with strings, guitars, percussion and a piano.
Some songs on the album I would consider as just being good and not as special as the others (hence the 4 out of 5 rating), but the few people who buy this album are in for another treat from the fairly unknown living legend that is Grant Lee Phillips.
My personal favourite moments on this album are Strangest Thing, It Aint the same old Cold War Harry, Little Moon and Buried Treasure plus I reckon Older Now is a grower!
I would recommend this album wholeheartedly. He is also excellent live (I have been lucky enough to have seen him four times since 2002). He and his original bandmembers are playing a reunion gig at the Royal Festival Hall in London on 15th January 2011. I would suggest buying their four albums Fuzzy, Mighty Joe Moon, Copperopolis and Jubilee, buy a ticket, listen to them regularly between now and the 15th January, and enjoy a rare chance to see a great band perform some truly great songs LIVE. I'm going and I CAN'T wait!!
