Product Description

"the purest voice to come down the pike in ages." ? Time Out NY"Songs of poetry, harmony and sweetness and the honeyed, craggy voice of the classic American country singer... Paisley's perspective is that of the Canadian outsider, seeing America anew whilst being fully immersed in its history and myths. Like The Band he re-presents American music history without the trappings of fashion and, like the Young of After The Goldrush uses his outsider status to ruminate on America's fate" - Mojo

Doug Paisley - A new generation of Canadian singer songwriters emerges Jan. 2 2011
By Red on Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Its the season of melancholy, a time of dark nights nights and winter chill, the proper time to reflect on the human condition and Doug Paisley is here to assist you with that task. "Constant Companion" is the second album from the Toronto based singer songwriter and he has had the good sense in addition to bring in a cast of top notch musical collaborators such as Garth Hudson of The Band, Basil Donavon of Blue Rodeo, and the wonderful Canadian chanteuse Leslie Feist. Mojo argues that "Paisley's perspective is that of the Canadian outsider, seeing America anew whilst being fully immersed in its history and myths". There clearly is something to this as Canadians seem able to incorporate a sense of distance and to be able to strips the leaves from the North American tree and examine its roots with more critical care.

Check out post haste the lovely duet "Dont make me wait" with Leslie Feist which harks back to simpler times and we may have found the new Neil Young and Joni Mitchell for the Twitter generation who nail this beautiful love lament. "What I saw" shows that Paisley has listened very carefully to "Harvest Moon" but in a respectful as opposed to copyist mode. It rolls alongs wonderfully and is a great soundtrack for sitting back and doing nothing at all. "End of the day" settles into this groove and has a warm vocal by Paisley which is supplemented by a trademark Garth Hudson organ solo. "Bluebird" adds more bite and evokes the great Will Oldham and the mood he captured on 2010 Cairo Gang collaboration. The wondrously melodic opener "No one but you" is more up tempo, while the long closer "Come here and love me" places him firmly in the ranks of great new emerging songwriters with a heartbreak love song that is probably the albums highlight.

Perhaps on times this album is a bit too comfortable and you sometimes long for a harder edge and some more grit. Paisley's purpose however is evoke a mood of quiet reflection and overall he succeeds well in his ruminations.

This has now become a favourite, simple melodic and effective July 15 2012
By A C SHIELDS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First, I have to thank MOJO magazine for making me aware of this album. Unlike many other modern albums, this has simple acoustic arrangements that don't get in the way of the songs. There is a country influence, but it is subtle. Doug gets his message across without any trouble at all.

The last song on it, Come Here My Love, has to be one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Not only is the melody simple but affecting, so are the lyrics, the last line being 'so go to sleep my love, beside me'. I like about half of the songs, but the ones I love make up for the rest. I am just about to buy his other album and EP, as I feel I need to hear them - I suppose that shows how highly I regard what he does. If you like good strong unpretentious music, buy this album.
VINYL: Good; MUSIC: AMAZING June 14 2014
By Longsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: LP Record Verified Purchase
This album introduced me to Doug, who has a way with music and lyrics. There is a bit of tentativeness a times on this album, perhaps due to confidence (if I played with a member of the Band, I'd be puking!) or finding his SOUND. In any event, the songs themselves are well done, well performed and very enjoyable, regardless of any confidence or other issues...

Re Vinyl. Decent pressing, lays flat with minimal pops and noise. Better than the MP3s, but not by miles.
Solid Songs and Soothing Style Nov. 18 2013
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Like another reviewer on this page, I also bought this CD based on the glowing review in Mojo Magazine, and I was not disappointed. I was instantly impressed with Doug Paisley's warm music style. The songs are tuneful and soothing, most of them supported by Paisley's acoustic guitar and tuneful vocals. I also totally love Garth Hudson'g organ playing on these songs too, and Ihink that's one ingredient that really makes this album shine and stand out from the pack. It also doesn't hurt to have one of the guys from the underrated Blue Rodeo helping out, plus Leslie Feist offering a very nice vocal contribution on a duet.

My favorite tracks are the opening one, "No One But You," "End of the Day," and the closing tune, "Come Here and Love Me." Other listeners will no doubt have different faves, and that wouldn't surprise me: there are no duds on this album at all! I'm looking forward to hearing the next Doug Paisley album, slated for early 2014. This guy is a singer-songwriter worth hearing.
great Singer Songwriter album Feb. 2 2012
By Stig Gunna Slaattun - Published on Amazon.com

Brilliant album, slow moving Country/folk gems. It sounds like a great lost album from one of the 1970s greatest singer/songwriters. Is's pure and as i said a GEM!
