Paul Kelly - Nothing But a Dream (2001) Retail CD
Nothing But a Dream is the first of Paul Kelly's many albums which does not contain any of the explicit--or even obscure--references to Australia that characterise his work. It is unlikely that this represents any sort of career move on Kelly's part--he has been doing things his own way too long--but it is nonetheless to be hoped that this album of songs concerned with all the great universal themes (love and the loss of it, life and the dwindling of it) attracts a wider audience to Kelly's astonishing gifts. His peers are the great American populist chroniclers--Springsteen, Dylan, Earle--andmore… his catalogue stands comparison with any of theirs. Kelly's genius is for doing the simple things well. His music is simply arranged, his lyrics are straightforwardly told, and his voice is plaintively honest. What distinguishes him from the world's uncountable legions of dreary, self-obsessed groaners with guitars is his knack for an insidious melody or subtle turn of phrase that ensures the songs last long past their final chord. "If I Could Start Today", "I Wasted Time" and "Close My Eyes" are among the very best things Kelly has written, and those lucky or enlightened enough to know his work well will understand that this is pretty much as good as it gets. --Andrew Mueller
