5.0 out of 5 stars Things that change you, April 6, 2001
There are those moments in any music lovers life when you pick up an album/C.D., take it home, put it on, and the world stops. What you are hearing is nothing like anything you have heard before. There is nothing you can compare it to. You realize that this music is about to change you. From the opening lines of Christine's Tune..."She's a devil in disguise, You can see it in her eyes", you are transfixed. Parson's voice is so immediate and present. You hear an honesty so fragile you're afraid he just isn't going to make it through some of the songs. When the last note sounds you immediately replay the entire album. There is no going back to selections 2, 6, and 9. That won't do. You want to hear the whole thing again. You have begun a journey that will take you forward and backward at the same time. This album leads you into Gram's other works: "G.P." and "Return Of The Grievious Angel" being the most prominent. It also takes you back with new ears to listen to the artists that influenced Gram. I have been listening to this particular album for over 30 years and I am still in awe of its eternal virginity. Give it a listen, you won't regret it.
