EDITORS’ NOTES

After recording albums dedicated to Shakespearean sonnets and funerals, Kelly returns to his bread and butter—a full-band album bristling with wit, panache, and his philosophical take on life. “Firewood and Candles,” “Finally Something Good,” and “Josephina” add to Kelly’s reputation as one of Australia’s most respected and revered singer/songwriters. He applies his nimble touch, whether putting music to a Langston Hughes poem (“Life Is Fine”) or taking on that menacing societal plague, the Man Cold (“My Man’s Got a Cold”).
