Editorial Reviews

Reverie came to fruition when Joe Henry and his fellow musicians convened in Henry s basement studio for three days of exploration. The result is an all acoustic album more full of life from the birds chirping through the open windows to the ticking and shifting of the musicians than any Henry has recorded. And that s saying a lot: for more than two decades Grammy winner Henry has produced some of the most celebrated names in music, from Ornette Coleman and Elvis Costello to Ani DiFranco and Madonna. Working with his regular stable of musicians and guests including master guitarist Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), singer Jean McClain and organist Patrick Warren, along with a special appearance from recently produced Lisa Hannigan, Henry has produced another masterful set of songs.

Joe Henry deserves more fans.

The 3-time Grammy winning producer/singer-songwriter/all-around-genius keeps making stunning albums. I truly do not know how he does it. Every time a new album of his comes out there's at least one song that makes me say "This is the most beautiful song I've ever heard" (Want Too Much, Flesh and Blood, Wave). But no, then he goes and releases another album and there's a whole other selection of most beautiful songs to choose from.

I hate to say things like this, but I think this is his best since "Tiny Voices," an album which people seemed to love or hate (why? loved it).
That said, I loved Civilians and enjoyed Blood From Stars, but those 2 are in a different league. Reverie is intimate, and emotional. I don't smoke anymore but this album makes me want a cigarette, and a road trip, and to call up people I haven't seen in years.

Reverie is all acoustic, but reviewers keep calling it his "rock" album. I don't agree. Like all Joe Henry albums, you can't pick one genre, the best you can do is say he combines folk/jazz/rock/pop and blues into some kind of beautiful Americana. I think this is why people keep comparing him to Tom Waits (me included), because how do you define that type of music?

Joe is also a poet. Let's take the song "Eyes Out For You" (my current vote for most beautiful song). The rhyme scheme on this song is perfect, and yes I spent a good part of my day yesterday studying it. And it's not just the rhyme, but the lyrics, brilliant as usual, and then the actual music.

Yes, he's done it again (just read that somewhere). Joe Henry's
recordings are works of ART. There's the music, there's the lyrics, there's the
performance - and together they provide a tableau of aural delights. Entertainment
for months repeated listenings trying to get into it. His more recent recordings are like
a thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail, or sitting down to a 1,000 page book, or driving cross country on two lane roads.
You laugh, you cry, and then you shake your head and wonder how this guy creates this amazing material every couple years. And I'm very happy he creates this music. It makes living this crazy life a little more enjoyable.

It's not often I write reviews , however I can let this opportunity slip by. I first enjoyed Joe Henry's cds back in the early nineties with "Short Man's Room " and "Kindness of the World" . As much as I greatly enjoyed both those albums "Reverie" is wonderful. There is a denseness to the production that is at first slightly offputting but then through this comes these great , great songs, revealing themselves as the gems they are. And I don't mean layers of sound , more the use of the instruments. I believe Henry to be one of the finest sonwriters I've ever heard , with Reverie a triumph of the highest order.

If you are a fan of Joe Henry's 1990
Shuffletown album, you will love reverie. The album is full of quiet reflective ballads. The sound is rich and warm with a hollow spacey feel or echoe between the instruments. The vinyl edition is extremely quiet and includes a free cd version inside. I wish more of joe Henry's music was available in this format. Excellent music and excellent package.Reverie

I've been listening and absorbing Reverie for a few weeks now. It's an altogether outstanding piece of work. It's as good, and, in some ways, better than the utterly fantastic works he's done in the last 10 years. If you're looking for songs to love on the first listen, may I suggest Odetta, Sticks & Stones, Tomorrow is October, and Eyes Out For You. But there are other songs that take a bit longer to unfold. And, oh my, they are well worth the effort.
Some of the songs on Reverie feel loose and rambling....even though what they are made of -melodies, exquisite musical flourishes, astute lyrics--feels very carefully measured out. As always with Joe Henry, there's a range and blend of styles.
What it all adds up to is masterful music. Reverie is layered, intimate, raucous, truthful and lovely. I'm grateful for these songs. There may not yet be legions of Joe Henry fans out there in the world, but for those of us who are in the know, each new Joe Henry lp is a milestone and a true cause for celebration.

Am I the only one who hears a great Richard Manuel solo album here? That's no a sleight on Joe Henry! I'm a big fan--a fan who goes all the way back to Murder of Crows. So listen and love this record. Then listen to The Band's music. Love them, too.

It's just an idea: But Joe Henry is a Major American talent. In a weird way, "the lost have been found."
