A fine, underrated effort

"I've been a big fan of Bruce Cockburn's since "Stealing Fire", and I own most of his earlier work now. This is not his finest album, but it's very good. "I Don't Feel Your Touch" is one of the most poignant broken heart songs you'll find, and the playful, thoughtful "Shipwrecked At the Stable Door" is wonderful. Give it a listen; you won't regret it."
Essential Canadian content

"Carries the anger of "If I had a Rocket Launcher" (Where the Death Squad Lives), and environmentalism (Radium Rain, If a Tree Falls), and love (Pangs of Love), and so much more. I just re-listened to my tape (CD on "will-get" list), and every emotion is portrayed in these 11 songs. Plus, can the man ever pick guitar! One for the ages!"
