Nothing But a Dream [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
One of the great secrets of the Australian music scene, Paul Kelly is a veteran singer-songwriter whose current work can always be counted on for intelligence and verve. Nothing but a Dream distinguishes itself through literate songs and Kelly’s ever-vibrant performances. As usual with this eclectic artist, the music touches on rock, pop, and folk with an easy touch that proves he’s equally comfortable with each genre and is ready to conjoin them when necessary. The additional bonus of four tracks from Kelly’s recent Roll On Summer EP is a nice touch. Nothing but a Dream can only add to Kelly’s reputation as one of the finest ...

Nothing but a Dream distinguishes itself through literate songs and Kelly’s ever-vibrant performances. As usual with this eclectic artist, the music touches on rock, pop, and folk with an easy touch that proves he’s equally comfortable with each genre and is ready to conjoin them when necessary.

Nothing but a Dream can only add to Kelly’s reputation as one of the finest contemporary artists still unjustly ignored in our country.
All Music Guide - Jason MacNeil
This longtime Australian singer/songwriter has often been hailed as his continent's equivalent to Bruce Springsteen in his relevance and consistency. And while some of the songs reek of too much polish and production effects, such as "Midnight Rain," the subsequent "I Close My Eyes and Think of You" more than adequately compensates for such mistakes. On this album the songs speak of a certain longing and asking for redemption, but are dominantly roots pop arrangements. "Change Your Mind" resembles Mark Knopfler's subtlety over a sparse ambient background. When the backbeats take over, though, and strangle a song such as "Just About to Break," it leaves a lot, if anything, to be desired. "Love Is the Law" goes into David Bowie synth-heavy pop territory, but it also doesn't bode well. Thankfully, "If I Could Start Today Again" and "The Pretty Place" steer the album back into a welcomed and comfortable setting. It sounds as if Kelly has more than perfected his craft listening to "Smoke Under the Bridge" and "Would You Be My Friend," both of which could pass for last-minute cuts from The Ghost of Tom Joad. An added bonus is the four additional tracks from a previously released EP, with the funky duet of "Roll on Summer" being the high point of the lot.
USA Today
“On his new CD, this revered Australian singer/songwriter manages to maintain both his dignity and his sense of adventure.... rootsy exotic and contemporary... without seeming self-conscious. Dream clearly represents an old pro who has not yet fallen asleep on the job.”
