CD Reviews

Very Satisfying!
John Sunderman | Redwood City, CA, USA | 10/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I listened to nothing else but this album for the first month I owned it. Now after a few weeks away from it, I played it again today. This album is amazing! From a musical craftsmanship standpoint he is very adept. In "Wishing Wells" he uses a measure of 2/4 here and there that reminds me of the Beatles and at least one Steely Dan song; It really works. Previously "Dandenion Wine" was not quite in the top tier for me but today it reminded me so much of my marriage and divorce. It rings so deeply and so true. He manages to teeter on that line that Joni Mitchell, at her best, does as well, between deep raw emotion and overly sentimental maudlin manipulation without falling into the latter."
Music by a *musician* - can you believe it?
Robert C. Thornett | Fairfax, VA | 04/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music landscape these days is littered with singers who can't sing, songwriters who can't write songs. Ron Sexsmith can sing, Ron Sexsmith can write songs very very well and has been doing so for a long time. So easy to say, so hard to find--but here it is. Retriever is a great album of many moods, poetic lyrics, and consistently mellifluous melodies, there isn't a dud in the mix. I'm hoping he never goes big-time so we keep getting albums like this one."
