Roy Harper - Man & Myth
Roy Harper's return to recorded music just seems to have happened. His early, epic works like Stormcock, Lifemask and HQ are legendary, sounding like nothing else. A singular vision indeed. This new album, continues that trend. No one writes lyrics like Harper and sets them around such beguiling, beautiful music. He has lost none of his powers. Just listen to something as involving as Time is Temporary or January Man and see if it doesn't move you like nothing else. Its the testament of a truly great artist that his voice and songs can affect you so deeply. Genius is an often misused word. But he is!
