This 1980 set by Bruce Cockburn, one of Canada's pre-eminent singer-songwriters, marks a turning point, both lyrically and musically. His songs take on more textures, moving beyond folk into rock with "Tokyo," while embracing reggae on "Rumors of Glory." His political engagement really kicks into high gear, too, with fables like "More Not More" and "How I Spent My Vacation." Not unlike Bob Dylan, Cockburn can be a trenchant social commentator, one who isn't afraid of the acid attack, while maintaining a very positive, frequently spiritual outlook on life. While there's a touch of the personal in "What About the Bond," dealing obliquely with the breakup of his marriage, he looks outside himself on Humans, unafraid to criticize the world and hoping to make it a better place. --Chris Nickson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
