God that triumphs

Songs from the God that Comes is a significant achievement for Workman, whose vocal- and playing-styles on this album encompass the breadth of variety showcased throughout his career. Mirroring the plot of the theatre piece, the sonic textures seem at war with each other in the most entertaining of ways, see-sawing between visceral darkness and sexy playfulness. There is even some haunting, naked moments of sincerity thrown in. All in all, it's quite a pretty thing. At once it feels like both a hedonistic celebration of frivolity and something carefully written with an eye toward longevity. Truly something to behold.

Comes and Goes too fast!

Basically what you end up with is something like Pink Floyd's "The Wall" as imagined by Tom Waits. (A good thing. Very good!) Saw the live one-man show of this, and was blown away by this man's talent. Every artist deserves a rock-opera/concept album, and this one managed to seem less indulgent than most projects of it's kind. Each song is wonderful, though the most memorable ones come towards the end, when things get serious. Passionate, dark, exciting and an incredibly engaging listen.

Biography

From this point on, however, the tale gets somewhat hazy and wholly bizarre, owing in large part to the short, ongoing biography published on his website. Self-styled by the artist himself, it seemed to be a partially invented, quasi-fictional account...
