So pronounced is Bruce Cockburns reputation as a celebrated singer-songwriter and respected music activist that it's sometimes been easy to overlook the fact that Cockburn is also an exceptional guitarist. Speechless should change all that. A collection of previously recorded and brand new instrumental tracks, the album puts the spotlight squarely on Cockburn's brilliant acoustic guitar playing.
Ranging from some of his earliest numbers to three recent compositions, Speechless showcases the breadth of Cockburns eclectic guitar style. Theres a strong cinematic quality to much of the album, whether its in pieces from the 1970s like the haunting "Islands in a Black Sky" and the cascading "Water into Wine," or else in 1990s instrumentals such as the emotional "When It's Gone It's Gone" and the ambient "Mistress of the Storms."

From the first listen, it instantly become one of my favourites.
An enjoyable addition to the work of a great artist.
I remember the endless outdoor folk festivals back in the mid seventies that I attended. Back then it was Bruce Cockburn and Valdy topping the bill and lesser known Bim. Those were the days. Ottawa was alive and music was everywhere.
Bruce has always been a spokesperson for the environment and causes associated with crimes against nature and mankind. He would visit developing nations,tackle national and global political causes which would become fodder for his writing and music.
This album is a twist to his usual albums as the title says "Speechless", just an endless array of intricate acoustic and spiritual numbers.
I envy his lifestyle, his passion for mankind and the world we live in. He is truly a great musician and a great Canadian.
This album is special.
