ALBUM REVIEW: Damien Jurado – Visions Of Us On The Land

unnamed-5-768x768

Rating8This is the last in a trilogy of albums that Jurado has released with producer/collaborator Richard Swift and it’s as immersive, wide ranging and often fantastical as its predecessors. Swift again brings a lushness of production to Jurado’s folk songs. He adds the drama, the texture and the light psychedelia that washes over the 17 songs. The album completes the tale of an individual who has had to disappear from society in order to discover some universal truths and as such there is a narrative density which means fans and those with the patience and curiosity to undertake a masterful and magical songwriting trip will be greatly rewarded.
