CD Reviews

"My heart is hung down with the saddest of rain that I'm fee
William Timothy Lukeman | 10/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Who suspected that the end of Cream would give us such a superb solo album from Jack Bruce? With his perfectly-matched lyricist Pete Brown, he created a thoughtful, energetic, emotionally evocative collection of songs. There's an eerie, melancholy strain through many of these, such as "Tickets to Waterfalls," "Rope Ladder to the Moon," and my particular favorite, "Weird of Hermiston." That song always gives me chills! By drawing on jazz & blues, his deepest roots & always his greatest strength, he fused art & pop seamlessly. There's no good reason some of these songs shouldn't have been Top 40 hits; but at the same time, there's no compromising of his artistic vision. The surreal insight of the British poetry underground, as expressed by Pete Brown's mysterious & delightful lyrics, only adds to the power & beauty of the album. Certainly not for everyone, but if you're willing to listen with an open heart, you'll be amply rewarded. Most highly recommended!"
One of the most brilliant albums of music ever recorded
M. Soc | Windsor, ON Canada | 10/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first (not counting 'Things We Like' - recorded before and released after) solo outing of the principal composer and bass player/singer of the mighty Cream. This record must be the most underrated in rock music history. It is brilliant! Do not expect Cream style bluesy hard rock here (for that you can check this year excellent 'Seven Moons'). The music is quite unique with the jazz/blues influences (Jack deeply understands all of it) and weird and beautiful surrealistic poetry by Pete Brown. There is nothing close to this record besides Jack's next one "Harmony Row"."
Great Album.

"I bought this album for the first time about 3 or 4 months ago. It was my first Jack Bruce album.
So I brought it home, and the first thing I did was run down stairs to my room and threw it into my CD player.
45 minutes later, I was absolutely speechless. I couldn't get over how great these 10 songs were.

Why you should buy this:
1. Lyrically and musically, every song is great. Pete Brown did a great job with the lyrics.
2. The sound quality is terrific. You hear everything with great volume. Nothing is too loud, nothing is too quiet. The remastering on it was put to perfection.
3. Bonus tracks. I wasn't around in '69 to hear this when it was new, I'm only 13, but there are four great bonus tracks, 3 of which are alternate mixes of songs, and the last is a piano demo. They're just good to hear."
