  • For his first album of all-new material since 2003's YOU NEVER SEEN ANYTHING, Bruce Cockburn delivers another set of poignant and atmospheric songs. In fact, LIFE SHORT CALL NOW reinforces the notion that the acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter has hit a 21st-century stride--outshining almost anything he's recorded since the 1980s--as revealed on the deft, lilting "See You Tomorrow" (featuring Ani DiFranco) and the upbeat, folk-tinged "Different When It Comes to You." The latter song stands in notable contrast to the spare "Beautiful Creatures," a dreamy track that evokes the thought of Peter Gabriel singing a Nick Drake tune. On this admirably strong latter-day outing, Cockburn reminds listeners that he's still a vital performer even three decades into his career.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "Known for his honeyed voice, nimble fretwork, and smart wordplay, Canadian Cockburn employs all this -- plus glockenspiel, flugelhorn, and Ani DiFranco -- on his 29th album." -- Grade: B

Uncut (p.95) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] lovely, stately affair that allows his languid melodies to breathe."

No Depression (p.106) - "The arrangements are deft: The sparing use of a string orchestra adds color and emotional weight; the dreamy 'See You Tomorrow' features harmonium, celeste, and Ani DiFranco..."
