iTunes Review

Warren Zevon’s final album before being diagnosed with terminal cancer was prophetically titled My Ride’s Here. It features Zevon in collaboration with a circle of writer friends, including Carl Hiassen, Larry Klein, Hunter S. Thompson, Mitch Alborn and Paul Muldoon. Like Zevon, these are all men with a sharp intelligence and dark wit whose predominant theme is aging amidst the cruelty and disappointment of the modern world. The album visits realms of darkness, especially on the Thompson-assisted “You’re a Whole Different Person When You’re Scared,” which includes this vision: “The eagle screams on Friday / The Colts are doomed this year / The fat's finally in the fire / In the Kingdom of Fear / Dangerous creeps are everywhere.” Longtime Zevon cheerleader David Letterman shows up with the Late Show band for “Hit Somebody (The Hockey Song),” which lightens the mood with a sweetly deranged character study in the mold of Zevon classics like “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner.” Though his twisted humor is in peak form, the album closes on a feeling of peace.

Excellent Song

Genius is an excellent song!! I can listen to it over and over again.

Few of rock & roll's great misanthropes were as talented, as charming, or as committed to their cynicism as Warren Zevon. A singer and songwriter whose music often dealt with outlaws, mercenaries, sociopaths, and villains of all stripes, Zevon's lyrics displayed a keen and ready wit despite their often uncomfortable narrative circumstances, and while he could write of love and gentler emotions, he did so with the firm conviction that such stories rarely end happily. Though he frequently worked with...
