By Johnnie Neptune TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves the listener speechless May 11 2012
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guitarist and composer Feb. 10 2008
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Variety from a Virtuoso of the Guitar April 13 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is a great addition for any Bruce Cockburn or any fan of expert instrumental guitar playing. There is variety in the style as well as the type of guitars being used (acoustic and resonator). I did not realize how good a guitar player Bruce Cockburn is until I saw him live in Thunder Bay about 20 years ago. I was blown away by a solo acoustic piece that he did. This is a CD that you can just put on and let it run regardless of what you may be doing - it is good listening without attention as background or when you listen intently. It is one of may favourite Bruce Cockburn CDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance without words Dec 8 2008
By Friederike Knabe TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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]
