CD Reviews

One of my most-played albums

"Here's a miracle: the best damn song cycle about love since Blood On The Tracks, without a trace of sentimentality; soul-baring without being confessional or embarassing. But then, Greg Brown fans must be getting used to miracles. Greg's songs about old love, the ups and downs of marriages, and the vagaries of romance are shot full of self-deprecating humour, insights and beautiful images (I can't get that old couple 'burning their love letters so their children won't be shocked' in Spring Wind out of my head). This is the least precious, most life-affirming 'folk' record you'll ever hear."
Gotta love Greg

"Dream Cafe has to be one of Greg's best works. With tunes like Spring Wind, Dream Cafe, and I Don't Know That Guy how could it not? I have to say this, you haven't really heard Greg until you hear him live. Especially live with Bo. The two mesh so well it is almost scary. The tunes are different every time you hear them with a little improv by both artists mixed in throughout. I highly recommend this album."
Greg lets his finest come to your ears....

"If you are familiar with Greg Brown, you probably are familiar with this release. If you don't have it, get it and treat yourself to an experience that take you on a journey of loves lost and loves to come. For those who are curious about Greg's work, this is an excellent place to start. There is not a bad cut here, and in particular, "Dream Cafe", "Spring Wind" and "Laughing River" are a trio of songs that somehow work some sort of magic into allowing me to see into life a bit deeper for a period of time. Two other releases that go along well with this are "Further In" and "The Poet Game.""
