Nick Drake's Pink Moon - I am adoring it!

As I continue my path of 2008 musical discovery, I have decided that the year will consist of The Who, Nick Drake, Bruce Springsteen and one of either the Stones, Dylan or REM. I walked into JB, trying to find either The Who Sell Out or Quadrophenia, neither of which were available (despite there being about six copies of Tommy, discounted ] so I wandered over to Nick Drake, found Pink Moon, and bought it.

And I am so glad I did. It is a wonderful record. It was kiiind of predictable, it was what I thought it would be, but that's by no means a bad thing. The vocals are just terrific, the guitar amazing, all of it. I've gotta run right now, but my favourite songs so far have been Pink Moon (the piano makes it all the better), Place to Be, Which Will and From the Morning. The only song I'm not a big fan of is Know. But what magic.

Pink Moon - 10
Place to Be - 9
Road - 7.5
Which Will - 9
Horn - 6.5
Things Behind the Sun - 7.5
Know - 6
Parasite - 7.5
Free Ride - 7.5
Harvest Breed - 6
From the Morning - 10

Horn, Harvest Breed, and Parasite pwn. Listen to them again.

His other two records are just as good. Five Leaves Left may be better, while Bryter Layter is more filled-out.

My favorite track on that album is Road.

Phenomenal record, one of my all time favorites. Glad to hear you're enjoying it.

And if you still haven't chose between the Stones, Dylan, or REM, do yourself a favor and go with Bobby D. It's an obsession that will never let up.

This is one of those classic albums.

That everyone should own.

I am ashamed to admit that I've never listened to much Nick Drake.

I should start.

You can always start with the illustrious Volkswagen commercial.

You're no help. I'll remember this when I spearhead the invasion of Canada.

This will greet you outside of my house:



In all seriousness, I do think Pink Moon is by far his best. I appreciate Bryter Layter in the sense that it definitely symbolized growth and a change of sound that came with it, but I never really took to that album. I don't know why. Maybe too jazzy for my liking?

Pink Moon it is.

And, yeah, we got some snow lately here in Chicago, but not quite that bad.

The invasion can wait until April.

I never really took to Bryter Layter either, outside of Hazy Jane II and Northern Sky. Nick Drake works best when it's just him and his guitar. Pink Moon is brilliant.

It definitely is his weakest, but still very good.

And how do you feel about Five Leaves Left?

I shall torture you with my impressions of it after giving it a few listens.
