Nick Drake - Pink Moon Click here to see this CD at Amazon.com!

By John Milward

Pink Moon is the sound of Nick Drake cracking up. That's not exactly true--some have long thought that his death by an overdose of an anti-depressant was an accident, and not suicide--but this album, recorded over two late nights, certainly sounds like a fever dream. Peter Buck of R.E.M. has called the album "Like an English version of (Robert Johnson's great blues) `Hellhound on My Trail.'" The lyrics to the title song read in their entirety: "Saw it written and I saw it say, pink moon is on its way. None of you will stand so tall, pink moon is gonna get ye all. And it's a pink moon." Aside from a splash of piano, the only instrumentation on this stark and spooky collection is Drake's eloquent acoustic guitar.

"Pink Moon is a bare and stark collection of music. The listener is pulled in to nicks lonely, dark, world and taken for a journey of desperation and despair. The songs are beatifully written and recorded without all the studio fluff. Drake was a very skilled acoustic guitar player with a knack for writing sad songs about happy things. As alarming as the final outcome, you become emmersed in the music and you feel the loneliness and doom he felt. This music makes you think. You will find yourself touched by it all and it won't be forgotten. Drake may have not found success and acceptance while living, but in death he has become immortal. he was never meant to get old. I enjoy all his music, I can identify with it. Nick made music for all of us outcasts and shy, lonely people. He is our god."
