Format: Audio CD
In the throes of a depression that would see him dead at the age of 26 from an overdose of anti-depression medication, Nick Drake still managed to produce his last album, "Pink Moon." Unlike his first two efforts, which consisted of orchestrated folk-pop music, this 1972 album was just Drake playing his acoustic guitar and singing (with a bit of piano here and there). The result is a bleak testament to melancholy and alienation that has a haunting and pristine beauty. There are only eleven songs, most of which are under three minutes in length, which is why the album is not even a half-hour long, but there is a sense in which anything longer would be too much to bear. "Pink Moon," by itself, justifies Drake's status as a cult figure among those who love folk-rock.
Ironically, you have probably hear Nick Drake's music before, because the title track was used for a Volkswaggen commercial, just another example of how music is perverted to commercial interests (what else is new?). I have been spending the cold winter putting together mixes of folk music (in the broadest sense) and making a concerted effort to get beyond Bob Dylan and the Byrds to explore the likes of Sandy Denny and the Beau Brummels. Checking out Sandy Denny led me to Fairport Convention and Richard Thompson, and eventually to Ralph McTell and Nick Drake. Now I can only wonder what rock I have been living under that I have never come across these artists before.
The title track is a beautiful folk ballad, performed with just Drake's superb acoustic guitar playing and haunting vocal. Throughout the album you notice the depth of his lyrics and his guitar playing.

To my surprise recently I saw the VW Cabrio ad with Nick Drake singing "Pink Moon". I thought, "Wow, great! More people getting turned on to Nick Drake's music, I hope!"
Each Nick Drake album is a little different, but each is fulfilling in its own way. If you enjoy this release then you will definitely want the Fruit Tree boxed set which compiled all three of his studio albums plus a fourth CD of extra tracks. It is well worth the money spent, trust me.
Pink Moon itself is way stark. Just the man and his acoustic guitar (with a touch of piano on the title track). But the songs themselves, the minute you hear them (and it's only 29 minutes of them on this album), they sound like you've heard them before.
If you're into old REM you'll see in a few of these tracks how they were influenced.
If you enjoy this release, you may want to check out Elliott Smith's releases, especially his album "XO". It is in a similar vein to Nick Drake.

I acquired this album from a friend about 6 months before VW decided to use the title track in their Cabrio commercial. I found it amazing that almost no-one had heard of Nick Drake, prior to the VW ad that is. The cd is 28 minutes or so, and it is purely amazing, just a wonderful way to pass half an hour of time. Most of the songs on Pink Moon are played in alternate tunings which account for their somewhat "different" sound. The cd has a very simple and clean feel to it, likely because it is merely Nick on acoustic guitar with occasional piano parts. So if you're into acoustic guitar music, you should like this album. Overall I find Pink Moon very peaceful, nice to relax to. Just sit back in your recliner, close your eyes, and really *listen*. To me it's mind-boggling that his music has been overlooked for more than 25 years. It's a shame Nick didn't live to see the success of his music.

Just to be different, I'm not gonna spend this review rambling on endlessly about whom Nick Drake sounds like or whom he's influenced. Instead, I'm gonna talk about his music -- specifically, in this case, the album "Pink Moon". Ready? Let's begin:
All of Drake's albums are pretty terrific. "Five Leaves Left" is wispy and fragile-sounding in a typical late-sixties folksy kind of way. The only thing that makes it rise above the sandal-wearing fray is the strength of the songs themselves -- which, when you think about it, is a pretty good way to rise above the fray, if one feels compelled to do such a thing....
Drake's second release, "Bryter Layter", is something quite different. This time, the songs (while still -- genetically, at least -- wispy and fragile) are beefed-up through a more ambitious (did someone say intrusive?) production technique. The end result is intriguing ("Hazy Jane I & II") and burdensome ("Poor Boy") in equal measure. Call it a draw.
Which brings us to "Pink Moon". Apparently, Drake was uncomfortable (surprise, surprise) with the pop star treatment of the "Bryter Layter" material because "Pink Moon"'s stark, acoustic offerings are obviously a bold reaction to it. These songs are so quiet and introspective that they make "Five Leaves Left" sound like Deep Purple's "Machine Head". But that is exactly why "Pink Moon" is Nick Drake's crowning achievement. If anyone's songs were meant to be recorded in a bedroom with nothing but a few wooded instruments and whispered vocals for accompaniment, it's Drake's. Just listen to "Road", "From the Morning", or the astounding, otherworldly title track and tell me that I'm wrong....

gatefold ?
This is indeed a gatefold (I run a record store and we received our copies today, for sale on Tuesday). It looks identical to the release of a few years ago, which was also in a gatefold, though I have no idea if the pressing is the same.
