5.0 out of 5 stars Ecstatic is an Understatement ! June 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first discovered Joe Henry, when I heard "Wave" on his 2007 Civilians CD. I was so impressed I purchased every CD prior to and after Civilians, and absolutely fell in love with this artist/writer's works. I was excited when I heard that "Invisible Hour" , was on the way, but I was totally unprepared to be swept off my feet in awe when I first listened to the songs. Nearly a week later, I still have not landed. Every talent Joe Henry has, came together in this CD as one of the most beautiful and moving albums ever. I don't know Mr. Henry, but it would seem that every inspiration, emotion and sense of wonder in his life, came together as one, and manifested itself in this piece of work. I would compare it to Joni Mitchell's Hejira, only because one hundred years from now, it will still be one of the most complete tomes of an individual's journey and discovery of love, life and the inescapable passage of time. This is one of the greatest CD's I will ever own, and recommend it to anyone with a touch of poetry in their soul. If you currently do not have poetry in your soul, this album will install it. The world just became a better place.

This is one of those rare occasions when the appropriate word is "Masterpiece". Lyrically, the songs on Invisible Hour are as good as the very best Bob Dylan (or the best contemporary poetry) and musically there's all kinds of sweeping melodies and small but stirring little flourishes that land at the perfect moment in each song. Deeply wise. Evocative and knowing. Gorgeous. I'll be listening to these songs for the rest of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Songwriter June 19, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Joe Henry is more than a songwriter but a true wordsmith. His images in word are spellbinding. Everything here gives modern songwriting a new champion.

Joe Henry, besides being an excellent producer for other artists, has been steadily assembling an enduring, wonderful discography as a solo artist, and his latest release, "Invisible Hour," is no exception. Here is a man who is a wonderful, heartfelt storyteller and tunesmith, who with each album, creates little miracles of haunting beauty and depth. This CD is a bit more autobiographical, but like his other output, is full of emotion, poetry, and honesty.
Along with his cadre of trusted studio musicians, Henry has once again plumbed the depths of life and the human soul, fashioning indelible tales that bear repeated listening, each session revealing more nuance and layers of meaning.
He deserves a wider audience, and I heartily recommend his previous releases--Kindness of the World, Tiny Voices, Civilians, Blood From Stars, and Reverie--as well. All are excellent, and have all received universal critical glowing praise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recordings Great Price! June 18, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've collected and listened to Joe Henry's recordings for the past dozen years. While some recordings are harder to find than others, I was amazed to get 22 tracks of Joe Henry from Amazon dot com for five forty nine!! Intelligent, emotional music as always, this CD thrilled me. My past favorites have included Tiny Voices and Scar. This recording stands well with any other.

5.0 out of 5 stars PURE AND NAKED June 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic album, splendid words, and incredible sensitivity. Is pure poetry, very personal and very close to you. Probably the most personal album of Joe Henry, the most sensible work of his great artist. Is like the last two albums of Kris Kristofferson, essential. Is a CD for all you life. Dedicated to her wife speak about relationship and matrimony. Great. Really great.
