Editorial Reviews

A true artist's artist, Ron Sexsmith has been writing and performing his earnest, soulful songs for nearly thirty years now, engendering praise from a litany of artists too influential and many to name. On his latest album Exit Strategy of the Soul, Sexsmith expands his musical canon with vaulted yet direct string arrangements and sweeping horn sections, resulting in a work equal in musical breadth and emotional depth. Recorded in both the cold of classical London and the sweaty flamboyance of Havana, Cuba, Exit Strategy... is a study of the beauty that can come from the heartfelt melding of seemingly contrary ideas, be they musical, cultural or emotional. Delving deep into Cuban music, Sexsmith recruited legendary Cuban musicians Amaury Perez and Alexander Abreu as well as experienced arranger Joaquin Betancourt to lend latin punch and style to his sweeping, yearnful melodies. Also appearing on Exit Strategy of the Soul is standout track 'Brandy Alexander,' co-written with fellow Canadian singer-songwriter Feist. After the two met at a party where Ron was drinking the concoction, the two entered into a long-distance collaboration with both artists eventually recording their own version of the song for their respective albums. In the career of Ron Sexsmith Exit Strategy of the Soul is at once a culmination and a precipice, a work that feels as complete as it does an artistic jumping-off point. Only the mind of the artist knows his intention and knowing Sexsmith, he's not telling.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Strategy July 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
When i read that Ron sexsmith was to use Cuban musicians in the making of this album i was a bit worried, i always preferred "Still Crazy" to "Graceland", 25 listens later i needed worry, this is another sublime sexsmith album, the use of Cuban brass is subtle and delightful giving the album a soulful and heartwarming ( a typical sexsmith trait) feel, his bittersweet lyrics and melodies are consistently superb, just listen to "traveling alone" a lesson in songwriting.

This is the best sexsmith album since, well, the last one and another wonderful entry to his superb back catalog, how can someone be so consistently good is beyond me.
I just say thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a Kind August 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The incomparable Mr. Sexsmith has come through yet again with another set of superbly crafted, wonderfully sung, heartfelt, and memorable songs. There are some fine singer/songwriters out there, but I am unaware of anyone who has created so much beautiful music over the past ten or fifteen years. Personal favorites from this collection include Ghost of a Chance, One Last Round, Thoughts and Prayers, Chased by Love, and Music to My Ears, but every song is a winner in its way. In fact, every song on each of Ron's ten albums is a winner. (Honestly - though some take a little longer than others). Truly one of the finest and most unique popular music artists around. If you haven't checked him out, by all means you owe it to yourself to do so. You can begin with this album, with the eponymously titled first album, or anything in between. It all makes your life better. The kind of music that makes you feel grateful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, I'm a Sexsmith Fan July 19, 2008
By M. Nye
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What Andre said! It's incredible! If you are a Sexsmith fan, don't hesitate to buy this album. It's definitely Ron's music but a little more ethereal as befits the title, I suppose. If you are new to Ron's music, try the album Retriever which is a little more crossover. If you like that then you will try the other albums like this one. If you want to download some sample tunes in addition to "Brandy Alexander" you can try "This is How I Know", "Poor Helpless Dreams" and "Brighter Still" to get you hooked. I like to say "We're Travelling Alone" with Ron Sexsmith on our iPods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Merveilleux July 18, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
Encore une fois Ron ne désapointe pas avec sont nouvelle album. Il est incapable d'écrire un mauvais album. Il n'a aucune chanson sur l'album qui laisse a désirer. Pour moi il y a toujours certaine chanson sur tout c'est album que je n'aime pas autants, mais cette album est remplie de chanson superbe. Incroyable. Sa version de Brandy Alexandre est meilleure que celle a Feist a mon avis.
Un album incroyable c'est tout!
I love you Ron!
