Most people think of Bruce Cockburn as Canada's premiere political folk artist. True enough. Often missed in this perception has been his long standing talent as a guitarist. The man can really play! He is adept, he is melodic, he is innovative. All of these qualities are apparent in this brilliant collection of instrumental pieces. Speechless indeed. This disc stands completely on its own as one of the best discs in this icon's catelogue. Right up there with Humans and Stealing Fire in its timelessness. And at the current price for this cd, it is a steal! Considering the chronological range of Speechless, it is incredibly seamless. Cue it up on the cd player and enjoy uninterrupted guitar pleasure from one of the masters.

Bruce Cockburn's lyrics has always been one of his strengths as an artist. By removing that component, I felt it would place this album at a disadvantage. But I was wrong. The music on this album has vitality, is very identifiable with Cockburn's acoustic work over the years and is thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end.
From the first listen, it instantly become one of my favourites.

For me, this CD highlights Bruce's strengths as a composer and musician, and his willingness to stretch himself artistically... Yet, this disc, by contrasting with his other disc -- by not having vocals -- makes a convincing case for the vibrance of Bruce's lyrics and singing (yeah, his voice is not the greatist, but it can be remarkably effective and moving).

An enjoyable addition to the work of a great artist.

Not many singer-songwriters can present something new with a compilation CD spanning 35 years of their artistic career. It has worked brilliantly for critically acclaimed Canadian icon, Bruce Cockburn. In particular, the collection features compositions from the early seventies that may no longer be familiar. Others are taken from various recordings made in the nineties. Three pieces are new creations recorded especially for this CD. Expertly produced by Bruce and long term friend and collaborator Colin Linden, they all sound new and fresh. Bruce is a acoustic guitar virtuoso as well as a composer expressing himself in many styles and rhythms: from blues to jazz to country and folk. The result is one hour and eight minutes of total listening pleasure.

Taking instrumental pieces from different recordings into a special collection gives them more prominence than when presented in between his usually powerful songs with lyrics. Combined together they underscore Cockburn's creative strength. They succeed in drawing the listener into a rich, diverse, melodious and expressive world where words are not needed and the mind can wander. The slow and haunting "Deep Lake" from the CD Breakfast in New Orleans Dinner in Timbuktu or the new recording "The End of All Rivers" come to mind. Beautiful! Personally, I am not able to specify any favourites among the pieces. While some Cockburn fans might miss the lyrics and Bruce's distinctive voice, I am certain this CD will open his music to a wider general audience. [Friederike Knabe]
