What's it called?:
What does it sound like?:
A typical Ron Sexsmith album,although the production has been stripped right back compared to his last album.As with all Ron's albums it takes a good few listens before you "get it",as it always sounds a bit samey the first time you listen.But when you do "get it " it's wonderful.The first track,Nowhere To Go,sets the tone with its French Horn and beautiful strings.What follows is a masterclass in songwriting.Great melodies with perfect arrangements sung in Ron's inimitable way.The two bonus tracks,Life After a Broken Heart and Autumn Light have lyrics by the great Don Black.Wonderful stuff!
What does it all *mean*?:
It means that Ron is one of the best singer/songwriters out there,even if he isn't a household name.
Goes well with …:
A nice glass of red,or a chilled bottle of beer.I usually listen with my headphones on laying on the settee with the lights off.Total relaxation.
Might suit people who like …:
I like my rock music and I like it loud,but sometimes you just have to put some Ron Sexsmith on to just appreciate some quiet and delicate music for a change.
