LJs new CD is a collection of intricate, luminescent gems.
LJ Booth is as literate as they come. As a lyricist he has the light touch of Lyle Lovett, the unabashed honesty of Leonard Cohen and the sprawling, joyous life of Walt Whitman. The plainness of his imagery and the economy of his phrasing is only made more effective by his glittering guitar parts and the simple grace of his songs.
His vocal approach also possesses the effective simplicity of Lyle Lovett with a little Gordon Lightfoot thrown in. On the more raucous tunes like "Hold On!" and the fiddle-driven "Changing Sky," Booth is still completely in control, driving the songs straight through to their satisfying conclusions. But it's on the quiet moments that Booth really shines, wheeling through joy, freedom and longing with simple grace.
LJ Booth is hands down one of the finest songwriters I've had the pleasure to encounter. The Ox That Pulls the Cart is a recording of rare insight and artistry.
Few writers I know are as musical, literate and elegant. I love his stuff and can't wait for each new song, each new album. The song, "The Ox That Pulls the Cart" is the kind of song I wish I wrote...it's a total gem.
...a master craftsman of incredibly profound songs, Booth is not as well known as he should be. It has been a long, but worthwhile wait since his last album in 1992. The songs here are fascinating, including the incredible, "CLUTTER". The fingerpicking is as good as the writing, and the whole album holds up, from start to finish. Highly recommended.
"To say that L.J. Booth's new CD THE OX THAT PULLS THE CART is intensely personal is an understatement. To say that it's a new level of achievement for this singer-songwriter, is too. To add that it hangs its hat on some of the best songwriting this accomplished wordsmith has ever penned and includes some topnotch musical accompaniment, would also be correct."
