about

Could it be that the world is finally ready for the tempestuous folkrock opera that is "All the Leaves are Gone?"

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 ol 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
(I think even Brian himself never even understood how good he
was). 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
