iTunes Review

On Reverie, this veteran singer/songwriter tackles subjects both lofty and commonplace with the melodic grace and fine-honed lyric sense that have long typified his work. In this live setting, Wilcox gives himself no room to hide — fortunately he’s ready to expose his thoughts and emotions without fear of disfavor. The playful “End of the World (again)” and the philosophical “Let the Wave Say” look at planetary change with a sagacious eye. More stinging are “Little Fish” (a sly commentary on the smugly religious) and “We Call It Freedom” (a warning against American xenophobia). Character sketches like “Shark Man” and “Angeline” are a touch unsettling. For the most part, Wilcox keeps his tone positive (if a bit melancholy) in songs like “Ireland” and the title tune. As usual, his acoustic guitar work is impeccable, with “One Way to Find Out” featuring some especially fine playing. Wilcox is a master at prodding the listener to think while surrounding him with a mellow aural atmosphere. Reverie ranks among his best efforts along these lines.

Customer Reviews

Awesome as always

There is one artist that is always in the Ipod or the cd changer in every vehicle I own.... No other songwriter I know of can in the same album touch your heart and tickle your funny bone the way David Wilcox can. His music can move your soul or make you giggle like a little kid. And there is no other musician that will carry you along on his lyrical ride to you are singing along the David Wilcox can. I have been listening to him for almost 20 years now and each new album to me at least, is like a visit from an old friend. I still can't help but hum East Asheville Hardware everytime I go into Lowes. Thanks as always for more great music.

Reverie

I've been listening to David for years. I first saw him at Spirit Square, Charlotte, NC in 1990 and have been hooked every since. Seeing Dave live is the best gift. When we all shout out the songs we want to hear the list is long and it's like hitting the lottery when he picks your favorite. Reverie has the potential to have songs on my shout out list. There are no better albums when it's just Dave and his guitar. He speaks right to me! Enjoy everyone.

Get this album

David Wilcox has been writing songs for 30+ years, and it shows. From the first moments of the album, he drags you in with a songwriting style that has develolped into something truly different and unique, yet with the approach and enthusiasm of somebody just starting out. The songs on this album are as fresh and interesting as when I first heard him years ago, but they are on a whole new level. His songwriting is incredibly varied and his voice and playing really helps bring these songs to life. I've listened to this album many times already, and will be playing it for many people in the future!
