    Blood Meridian in Song

    My husband purchased this CD for me because he had heard a story about it on NPR. Knowing I had read Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian" he thought I might enjoy this CD. Well, enjoy is a relative expression here. I did enjoy this CD very much, but then I also enjoyed the book. I am also willing to admit that enjoying any Cormac McCarthy book takes a certain amount of darkness of mood, and most especially "Blood Meridian".

    Ben Nichols has a dark sadness in his voice that lends itself to the tone of this CD and the book it is based on. There is nothing uplifting or happy about "Blood Meridian" but I always felt that it was as true to life in the American west of the 1800s as a writer could get, and Nichols holds that truth in his creation of "Last Pale Light in the West".
