iTunes Review

Maine songwriter Ray LaMontagne's follow-up to his surprise 2004 hit album Trouble is an even quieter meditation. Again teaming with producer Ethan Johns, the duo approach things with the expected naturalist touch: acoustic guitars, gentle strings, quiet brushes sweeping the drums and a romantic daze over everything. Reminiscentof Cat Stevens in his calm solemnity, and Van Morrison in his husky tone, LaMontagne settles here for fewer vocal sprints, preferring mostly to whisper softly and let things resolveon their own. It's music that makes no attempt to reach out, but rather drawsyou in. The listener muststrain to hear the intimate conversation. The opening six minutes of "Be HereNow" set an ethereal vibethat is slightly augmented throughout the album mostly with tastefully applied strings. "Barfly" dissipates in the air, words collapsing in the heat of emotional intensity. "Three More Days" is virtually an all-out attack by comparison, a three-chord blues that builds to nearly a shout. LaMontagne is an old-fashioned guy, recording as if the three decades separating him from the early '70s milieu he evokes neverhappened, making Till the Sun Turns Black ananachronistic gem.

Music you can feel.

I'm a little shocked no one has written anything about this here Goes!

Turn down the lights, bring out the candles...

Wow...this CD is phenomenal. I don't usually write reviews but this one has been deemed worthy. I bid you to purchase and enjoy.

With a voice that recalls a huskier, sandpapery version of Van Morrison and Tim Buckley, Ray LaMontagne joins such artists as Iron & Wine in creating folk songs that are alternately lush and intimately earthy. The songwriter was born in Nashua, New Hampshire in 1973; his parents split up shortly after his birth, and his mother began a pattern of moving her six children to any locale that could offer her employment and housing. As a result, LaMontagne grew up as the perennial new kid in school (when...
