This review is from: Nightmoves (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of Kurt for several years and several albums, so take this review as another "fan-based" one, as well.
I love this album. I was fortunate to hear selections of it when Kurt kicked off his tour a few weeks before the album hit. Needless to say, I was really glad to have tickets for both of his nights here in Seattle because I really needed to hear some of these again.
"Wee Small Hours" is now a Kurt Standard. He owns this song. I have about 6 different versions on my Ipod, and his is a reinvention of the highest order. I only wish it was longer.
And I can't even hear the word "love" anymore without thinking of the chorus of the title track. Even if it is a Michael Franks tune, I've got a new definition for love!
I have a special place in my heart for Kurt's lyrics -- and I think that this is some of his most soulful work. I think that he really keeps the night alive -- it's like I'm drifting through streets, taking glances at different people's lives as we all wait for morning to arrive. I've gone through the night with the album at least twice now and I find it to be a rich experience, picking up something new every time.
Can't leave out the amazing work of Laurence Hobgood (who should be nominated for some serious awards for his continual excellence), as well as the talents of Rob, Willie and Christian for some serious groove.
Two words: Own it.
