Sheer beauty. With a side order of nihilism.,
This review is from: New Moon (Audio CD)
From beyond the grave, this precocious talent still has the power to astound. Mined from his most prolific period, 24 gems that were thrown away, probably never intended to be released. Such is the genius of the troubled troubadour, that even the songs deemed unworthy of being included on an album, are infinitely better than some artists' entire canon.
His haunting voice holds more resonance now that he is no longer with us, and will always be at odds with the gorgeous melodies. We need him around more than ever, with the James Blunts and Morrisons polluting our airwaves. And that's what makes this album all the more melancholy, albeit triumphant that he's still putting music out there that is far superior to his supposed peers.
