Bruce Cockburn - Life Short Call Now (2006) Retail CD
British popular music listeners have become less and less surprised in recent years by the quantity of good music coming out of Canada. The World Historical Importance of Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young has long been recognised, but the success of bands like Arcade Fire and (to a lesser extent) The Dears, Black Mountain and Hidden Cameras, among others, has for the first time made the Great White North slightly cool. In Britain, Bruce Cockburn stands somewhere behind and between the superstars and the trendsetters; though he sells out major halls throughout North America, his followingmore… here is of a "cult" character (a couple of years ago he did a tour of VERY small venues). Life Short Call Now is among the best of his recent work, and if his local representatives get behind it, it could well win him the much wider UK audience he deserves. Beautifully produced, it showcases his major qualities as a virtuoso guitarist, intelligent songwriter, and pretty decent singer. As usual it mixes songs of religious and political commitment (he's a left-wing Christian, critical of the American-British folly in Iraq) and songs about personal relationships, all equally well observed. On first listening, I prefer the slow ones to the fast ones and my favourite is the regret-sodden, slightly abstract Beautiful Creatures. Though I gave it four stars, it's really a four-and-a-half.
