In 2004, only the truly informed and forward-thinking heads
"got" this mini masterpiece. Critics scratched their heads and usually resorted to comparisons of past artists, like Grace Slick and her
Great Jefferson Society, Fairport Convention (but which era? SURELY Judy Dyble's early reign?), and at best, Shirley Collins. A few
fans attempted to connect the record to even more obscure "freak folk/rock" like Mellow Candle, Fear Itself, or Trees. "All the Leaves
are Gone" was made by unique personalities not concerned with influences or copying any bygone era. Surely, some things are in our
DNA or even early childhood, as Josephine Foster's roots in opera manifest themselves as much as any other influence in this organic
song cycle. Sure, guitarist Brian Goodman may have heard Richard Thompson before, but his alchemical and molten guitar spray is
purely his own, in tunings and intervals still not meant for normal humans to understand, mostly because his 2004 guts were poured into
every sublime note . That fiery emotion is also in every nuance of Foster's songs--like life, there's disquieting, jagged moments of
unease, and there's calm both before and after the storm. There are moments of utter gentleness along the journey---because yes,
every concept album should be a voyage, and this is one everyone should take. - Steve Krakow.
