Album Review

On one level, Back to Love, Tom Goss' third album, is, as its title suggests, a collection of love songs feelingly sung and set to open-structured folk/rock arrangements. But it is clear from the urgency with which Goss sings and the terms in which he sets his observations that there is more at stake than romance. Goss, who moved from Kenosha, WI, to Washington, D.C. to attend a Catholic seminary and become a priest, but who ended up instead as an openly gay singer/songwriter, remains concerned with the ways in which his affections touch on larger issues. He is adamant about permanence and fidelity, singing, "You're my only lover" in "Lover" and pledging to stay "Till the End," as another song title puts it. But, he asks in "Break Away," "What is love if not the search for truth?" And truth, particularly in a spiritual sense, is clearly an ongoing interest for a man who may have veered away from a formal religious vocation, but still views the world in the moral terms he embraced in his youth; he just defines them differently now. In a musical context, this results in some impassioned performances of songs that aim higher and strike deeper than your average batch of romantic ditties.

Customer Reviews

Emotionally Rich Album

I first became a fan of Tom Goss last year at SXSW. His music has a message. One being of love. This album goes to the next level. You connect with the singer and his music. Every song on this is worth listening to over and over. Tom your journey has just begun!

Incredible emotional journey

I was fortunate enough to purchase this CD directly from Tom Goss at his recent CD launch party in Baltimore. His emotionally rich lyrics, floating over folk rock arrangements, conveys a sense of urgency to this emotion that we call love. Whether it be the impossible highs of that first true love to the dark heartaches of losing someone so dear. These songs have touched me in a way that I hadn't quite anticipated. I recommend that you add this album to your collection and look for more exciting projects to come from this talented artist.

check this man out if you haven't already!

What has captured me about this new, young artist ( and this is coming from a fellow morre than twice his age!) is the integrity of his music. There are no cheap lyrics or melodies here. You can know who Tom is from his music and what I know so far, I like. I have only recently discovered him and am captivated by his originality, depth and tenderness.

Back to Love, Tom Goss
