Beginning the quirky lyrics and heartfelt longing of the opening track, on Reunion Hill, Richard Shindell takes us on quite a ride and, in the process, proves himself to be a master songwriter. Most of these songs are miniature dramas that evoke all sorts of landscapes, from the evocative world of "May" to the melancholy morality of "Money for Floods" to the unbridled hopefulness of "Smiling" to the incredible dramatic sweep of the title track. Shindell introduces us to realistic, imperfect characters and explores a wide range of human emotions. Isn't that exactly what good folk music is supposed to do--explore and speak to PEOPLE? Musically, the tunes are very satisfying, there is excellent playing from a cast of solid accompanying musicians, and the production enhances the songs without excess. Simply put, this is a great bunch of songs, and Shindell's raw, slightly nasal voice is an ideal vehicle for them. Highly recommended.
