Randy Newman - Harps and Angels 2008

Rating:8/10
I'm not actually interested pub music on such extremly hot days. Harps and Angels is Randy Newman's first studio album of all new material in nearly a decade.

Guardian summarizes the whole record with a full five star rating:
It's nine years since Randy Newman's last album of new songs but, it seems, it's something like a miracle he's produced this one at all. He begins with a bluesy account of a near-death experience, a knee-trembling, heart-pounding episode that leaves him, for the purposes of the song at least, face down on the pavement unexpectedly facing his maker. The sound of harps and angels comes from God's backing singers as the judgment is delivered: 'You ain't been a good man, you ain't been a bad man...' Newman's tone is blacker than ever, both in pitch and comedy; the voice here aspires to the condition of Ray Charles with his evangelical piano.

I agree that he's a genius, however this is just nice cabaret record for someone who really loves Randy Newman. It's hard to compare him with others and that's all.

A bit mad huh? There is something crazy about this song, is it the video or the lyrics? It's maybe just me.
