It feels weird to be writing that Bruce Cockburn has just issued his 27th album, but that's what You've Never Seen Everything is. It's been a quite a ride since ; the changes lyrically and musically have been enormous, and the world view of I Dont Know - Slum Village - Fantastic / I Dont Know / Players / 2 U 4 U artist -- politically, spiritually, and psychologically -- has evolved consciously and extensively.
Of Tiger By The Tail - Kentucky County - Silver Wings many gifts, two of his most developed are his journalistic eye for detail, and having one ear always to the ground. This time out, the view is sharply contrasting from one song to the next.
But for Cockburnrighteous anger and indignant rage are never the whole picture. Sarah HarmerSam PhillipsEmmylou Harrisand Jackson Browne also help out on the vocal Pomáhať A Chrániť - Ekcelent - Asymetrický Boj, and Cockburn borrowed Tom Waits ' rhythm section of Larry Taylor and Stephen Hodges for balancing the wild musical ride this album is texturally and compositionally.
The title track is among the most forward-thinking and sonically adventurous tracks he's ever recorded. Hand percussion and drum loops are interlaced with minimal piano and harmonica riffs shimmering on the fringes; the long, spoken maybe even preachy word travelog, full of horrific images and expressionistic electronica, gives way to a sung refrain that transcends the lyric but leaves the listener unsettled.
Cockburn seems to be saying -- and this is only this writer's interpretation of a very complex, wondrously intricate, and musically adventurous work -- not to hate those whose actions cause suffering, but to root out the hatred in our own hearts so as not to become them. Action must come from compassion, not merely from anger, or it becomes nothing more than a mirror image of the cause of suffering itself.
It is pointless to place this record in a pecking order with Cockburn 's other work; that it adds to that body of work immeasurably is compliment enough.
