5.0 classicYouAreMySilence | October 21st 09

Vancouver, to me, is not just a recorded political statement, nor is just a great record by a great artist; what it is, is one the few records that have such a deep impact on me, not just in my own music but in my everyday life. It is the kind of record that reminds me of the kind of relevant art that can be made by a passionate songwriter, even one who has been around for over a decade and has been through so much desolation. Solely produced by Matthew Good, he combines the grandiose sound of the fan favourite, Avalanche, with the intimacy of heartbreaking, Hospital Music, creating a soundtrack that is not only politically savvy and intelligent but also devastating and desperate. With Vancouver, Good doesn’t simply make his other work irrelevant but instead, effortlessly, combines all the paramount attributes to make not just the record of the year, but his magnum opus.
