ALBUM REVIEW: Bruce Cockburn (10/10)

O Sun O Moon

True North Records

Producer: Colin Linden

Following five decades of award-winning music, Cockburn’s latest album delivers a soul-soothing catharsis, with his trademark poignant lyricism and impeccable guitar work. Clean folk-rock instrumentals lay the groundwork for his authentic, unfiltered vocals, with each song’s virtuoso playing bringing the listener a comfortable warmth. The collection revisits Cockburn’s magnetic, soothing storytelling and fantastic use of space, including mixes of violin, marimba, xylophone, and accordion. – Andrea Beenham
