  • Bruce Cockburn is as old as your mother and twice as much fun. And just like your mother, he will never lie to you. He's an old-school poet, writing from real events, rather than simply fabricating an appealing-sounding set of words. He tones down neither his left-leaning politics nor his steadfast Christianity, certainly alienating some would-be fans from the more extreme ends of both camps.
  • BREAKFAST IN NEW ORLEANS, DINNER IN TIMBUKTU is clearly one of Cockburn's finest among the 20 or so discs he had recorded up to its release. It includes a great acoustic guitar rave-up that's similar to Ralph Towner's more rollicking moments, and there's also a wonderful cover of "Blueberry Hill." Cockburn is St. Valentine; in love with God and in love with love, and like Leonard Cohen says, "ain't no cure for that."
Professional Reviews
Q (10/99, p.117) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...a songwriter's songwriter....even if Cockburn's spoken-word style sometimes grates. New Labor dinner party music perhaps, but with extra bite."

Dirty Linen (2-3/00, p.56) - "...[He] has woven the many facets of his music together for a fully matured result....Cockburn's muse is clearly working overtime..."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/00, p.100) - "...an album of alluring tone and many fine details, the pervasive force is his acoustic guitar work..."
