REVIEW : Lou - The Week



The best tribute to Lou Reed is this album by Joseph Arthur

Amere seven months since his death on Oct. 23, 2013 at the age of 71, Lou Reed has received a magnificently fitting musical tribute that is unlikely to be surpassed in the coming years. The album, titled simply Lou, comes from Joseph Arthur, one of the most gifted, passionate, and prolific singer-songwriters working today. His 2011 release, The Graduation Ceremony, was filled with moments of delicate, exquisite beauty, while The Ballad of Boogie Christ (2013) and The Ballad of Boogie Christ Act II (2014) displayed conceptual and artistic ambition that one rarely hears in pop music today. Arthur deploys all of his many talents on Lou, and the results are impressive.

At his best, Reed was an exceptional lyricist, savagely chronicling a range of urban outcasts, misfits, and addicts. His observations were often shot through with a raw, undigested rage and sadness that could be powerfully intense. Musically, though, Reed was extremely limited, with a voice barely capable of carrying a tune, and a tendency to favor arrangements that foregrounded electric guitar playing that could charitably be described as rudimentary.

Arthur has gone with sublimely stark arrangements for Lou — to extraordinary effect. By placing 12 of Reed's finest songs in a radically different context, Arthur re-imagines them from the ground up, accompanying his lightly distressed baritone with delicately strummed or finger-picked acoustic guitar, restrained piano chords, elegant electric bass, and his own multi-tracked falsetto harmonies. (No drums or percussion.) The focus throughout is on spare but lovely vocal melodies that Reed's own substandard singing could only hint at in the original recordings.

The result is haunting and transformative. Familiar Reed classics — "Walk on the Wild Side," "Heroin," "Satellite of Love," "Pale Blue Eyes" — sound completely new. Meanwhile, comparatively obscure songs — "Sword of Damocles," "Caroline Says," "NYC Man," "Men of Good Fortune," "Wild Child," "Coney Island Baby" — become impossibly overlooked classics.

And then there's "Dirty Blvd.," a surprise hit from Reed's excellent 1989 New York album. The original was Reed at his most commercial: upbeat, punchy, and tautly syncopated, with a hooky rhythm-guitar riff repeated incessantly through the chorus. The downcast lyrics, drawing a portrait of stark urban inequalities through the story of an impoverished kid named Pedro whose father beats him "because he's too tired to beg," were undercut by the jaunty arrangement and Reed's own inevitably deadpan vocal.

Arthur's version is a revelation. The rhythmic structure of the song's basic three-chord progression remains unchanged, but the atmosphere has become hushed and mournful, like a mid-tempo folk hymn, allowing the lyrics to stand out in razor-sharp relief, slicing through talk-sung melody with a chilling power. We hear about Pedro's nine brothers and sisters, and the despair that suffuses their lives — all while movie stars arrive by limousine at Lincoln Center just after passing a small kid standing at the mouth of the Lincoln Tunnel "selling plastic roses for a buck."

Twenty-five years after the song was first recorded, deep into a new Gilded Age marked by even starker inequalities, Reed's angry indictment at the mid-point of the song hits like a live wire: "Give me your hungry, your tired, your poor, I'll spit on 'em / That's what the Statue of Bigotry says / Your poor huddled masses, let's club 'em to death / And get it over with and dump 'em on the boulevard."

By the song's end, indignation has given way to wistful yearning, with Pedro finding a book of magic in a garbage can and attempting a trick that would allow him an escape from hopelessness: "'At the count of 3,' he says, 'I hope I can disappear / And fly fly away / From this dirty boulevard / I want to fly.'" The longing for magical transport away from misery and squalor, repeated over and over like a prayer of desolation, with Arthur slightly varying the melody each time and harmonizing with himself, is incredibly moving.

It's a great song, by an underappreciated songwriter, transfigured by one of our foremost contemporary musical talents.

REVIEW : Lou - OffTheTracks


May 25, 2014 by Simon Sweetman


Joseph Arthur has been prolific, particularly of late, three records in three year, his last (a double), still pretty fresh and now an album-length tribute to Lou Reed. Simply called Lou, Arthur pays his respects by reinterpreting catalogue highlights from Lou’s solo career and The Velvet Underground. The tracklisting is an exquisite highlight reel, cherry-picking magic from that first VU album all the way up to Set The Twilight Reeling (the last necessary Lou Reed album? I think so).

These versions feature only voice, acoustic guitar and piano, it’s Joseph Arthur on his own, self-produced. And even the way he’s arranged the order of these songs tells an important story. It’s about the work. The quality of these songs as pieces of writing – and though Arthur manages to arrive at very much his own versions you can believe, at every step, that he’s aiming to strip the songs of any baggage, to present them as pieces of emblematic, idiosyncratic, extraordinary writing.

He addresses the elephant in the room by opening the record with Walk On The Wild Side. Gone is that proud bassline (well, actually it was two basslines that’s why it never sounded right when covered, even Lou couldn’t do it justice when he played it live) and also missing is the jazzy ghost of brushed snare and that saxophone waft. It’s just the piano that leads, acoustic guitar peeking in and around Arthur’s voice. It was always easy to lose Wild Side inside the version of the song that threatened to dwarf Reed’s career if you were only a casual fan and seemed to be that most resented tune by the devotees. Here it’s a gorgeous, affecting ballad.

And then we’re straight into Sword of Damocles – an urgent acoustic down-stroke strum, this time the piano does the peeking. And wow, what a song. This was always a catalogue highlight but here Arthur has to find a (new) melody. His biggest challenge (outside of overall respect) in reinterpreting Lou’s tunes no doubt. Where, on the original, bowed bass, treated to evoke a cello stretched toward maudlin, made a mournful moment of longing sound so wonderful, here it’s just Arthur’s voice. He’s able to nah-nah-nah like a one-man-band of the Coloured Girls Lou called for on Wild Side.

Through a delicate drop of Stephanie Says to Heroin as if it’s the very best cover version Bono could offer the world, we then arrive at NYC Man. Reed wouldn’t have ever played this to follow on from Heroin but it makes a lot of sense. And then to Satellite of Love, again reminiscent of what Bono did with the tune, but never as cloying.

Dirty Blvd. sounds anew with that dirty, crude-chord riff dispersed – sure, this’ll never improve on the street poetry of the original but it’s a new way of looking at it. We probably never expected to hear new versions of Lou Reed songs – to actually see and hear and feel something new from them. And that’s Arthur’s secret triumph here. Every song is celebrated as an extraordinary literary achievement – but it’s newly cast. These don’t ever quite improve on the originals – as that’s never their intention. But they might be more enjoyable to hear from time to time. That’s the case with the version of Pale Blue Eyes. It’s more heartfelt without the tambourine that cutes-up the original; makes it seem ever so slightly like a novelty song.

And then to another of Arthur’s real triumphs here, the title song from Magic and Loss. Okay, so I’m biased, this is my favourite Lou Reed album and I didn’t expect to hear two songs from it in anyone’s list of favourite Reed songs (outside of my own) but again here it’s the way Arthur wholly reinterprets the song, finding a brand new tune inside it. Vocally it’s the highlight of the album.

By the time we get to the perfect closer, Coney Island Baby, Joseph Arthur’s voice is closer to Anthony Hegarty than it ever could be to Lou’s. And that seems fitting too.

There’s a ghostliness to this album – shadowy, serene. You imagine it being the toughest – most rewarding – album of Arthur’s career to date. And, if like me, you haven’t exactly rushed back to the Lou Reed catalogue since his death this might be the best way in. I’ve found this album a strange and lovely comfort. And it feels like the most sincere – and rewarding – tribute album I’ve ever heard. This is no slick, nasty, cynical cash-in. This is one artist honouring another, respecting the music of a friend; offering up versions of songs that clearly meant so much to him. And he’s nailed it. Knowing he could never replace the originals was the best way to approach this work. Here Joseph Arthur shows that he approaches music from both the head and the heart. That’s ultimately what he and Reed had in common.

REVIEW : Lou - AmericanSongwriter


Written By Hal Horowitz // May 13, 2014

Rating: 3.5 of 4 stars



The typical artist tribute assembles a larger–than-life cast, many of whom have little in common with the subject, to perform songs from a specific musician utilizing different backup bands. That’s not what this is.

Joseph Arthur explains in his strikingly honest, heartfelt and occasionally self-deprecating liner notes to this set of Lou Reed covers that he was specifically chosen to collect an album’s worth of his interpretations of Reed’s material due to his close personal and professional friendship to the late NYC based singer/songwriter. It’s a solo performance in the most literal sense; Arthur plays every instrument and also recorded, produced and mixed it. The results, while somewhat insular, are clearly a labor of love to a fallen friend.

The dozen songs touch on a few hits such as the opening “Walk on the Wild Side,” “Satellite of Love” and the difficult to reinterpret “Heroin” but dig much deeper into Reed’s catalog with obscure gems like “Sword of Damocles,” “NYC Man,” and Berlin’s “Men of Good Fortune.” As the stark cover implies, Arthur keeps the acoustic, drum free music simple, letting his expressive voice and Lou’s compelling lyrics drive the groove. Piano, guitar and occasional bass are the primary instruments, but even with overdubbing, the songs remain uncluttered and free of extraneous augmentation. It brings the listener closer to the heart of these compositions which, taken as a whole, paint a touching portrait of Reed’s talent for expressing complex concepts with urban, earthy clarity.

Some versions such as a particularly dirgy “Satellite of Love” lose Reed’s sly humor in the process and a few upbeat performances would have helped the flow of what can, after nearly 50 minutes of this heavy-lidded approach, get a little monotonous. But the serious, generally melancholy mood is intoxicating and Arthur is so obviously tapped into Reed’s vibe that the effect is more often mesmerizing. As accolades go, Arthur’s is unique, personal and compelling, all adjectives that also apply to the best of Lou Reed’s timeless music.

REVIEW : Lou - Newsday


Joseph Arthur's gorgeous Lou Reed tribute

May 12, 2014 4:39 PM
By GLENN GAMBOA

 


Joseph Arthur does the near-impossible on "Lou" (Vanguard). 

He brilliantly summarizes the career of his friend, the late Lou Reed, not by using the usual music industry criteria, but emotional ones. With only acoustic guitars and piano to support him, Arthur captures Reed's grit and innocence, his unflinching storytelling and earnest dreaming throughout his career in classics like "Walk on the Wild Side" and "Heroin" and lesser-known gems like "Magic and Loss" and "Coney Island Baby." 

The stripped-back arrangements let Reed's lyrics speak for themselves. But Arthur's voice, especially when he creates a chorus of his own harmonies, serves as a knowing guide in this celebration of the Freeport native.

Lyrics:
_
The moon will rise
Worship lonely astronauts
To our surprise we can never get the light we lost
_
With the weight of our emotions
Which are gone before they end
Are they here just to remind us
Of everything we've lost again
Everything we've lost again
_
D C A
_
When you cry your eyes are ???? x4
_
Send out the probe
Let it find eternity
It won't return
Or no one will be left to see
_
The stars are in their solitudes
The light it comes from them
By he time it hits your open eyes
All of it is lost again
All of it is lost again
_
I'm gonna leave this life of blind oblivion
Open my hands
And see if I can see again
The crowd gathers angerly
Round merching ships in sand (?)
But everything they buy down there
Only helps them to loose again
Only helps them to loose again
_
We disappear into one another's mind
And reappear with faith and something new to find
We are resurrected, our history so thin
With graduated needs to fill (?)
The love we'll only loose again
The love we'll only loose again

Intro and Verse 1:
_
Dm G Am Am

He was cut and then there was no fear
The dogs of hell within unborn
And like a ghost without an atmosphere
His voice sang without a song
_
Singing to the ships as the foghorns blow
Shipping light where darkness hides
The night was blind but it did see him go
For in this dark his light survives
_
Em Am

Chorus:
_
Go away
_
Em Am

Leave us alone

Em Am

We don't know yet who you are

So far
Am

From home

Verse 2:
_
Dm G Am Am

He stands before them as they judge his life
His shadow reaching underneath
He will fight he will reveal his knife
They will question his belief
_
They will shatter all his teeth
Blood from his mouth in darkness he can see
His suicide his love reborn
And hangin from a noose in secrecy
His mind and spirit will divorce
_
Em Am

Chorus:
_
Go away

Leave us alone

We don't know yet who you are

TAB : Cocaïne Blind


tabbed by luca (release@iol.it)


Chords

Asus2 [0-0-2-2-0-0]
Dsus2 [0-0-0-2-3-0]
C [0-3-2-0-1-0]
Em [0-2-2-0-0-0]
Bbsus2 [1-1-3-3-0-0]


Capo 3

This is an approximate arpeggio for one guitar during the verse
(the studio version features, I think, two guitars).
If you prefer, you can simply play an Asus2 [0-0-2-2-0-0] chord.
_


During the chorus, it goes like this:

Dsus2 C Em Bbsus2
(so alone) So alone (it's hard) it's hard (to go home babe) to go home babe
Dsus2 C Em Bbsus2
(skin and bones) Skin and bones (is all) is all (you are now babe) you are now babe

As the arpeggios are not so easy to work out, you can work out your own one
or simply play the chords.
_

Lyrics:
_
Cocaine blind in Times Square
The dark sun shines
? you there
_
So alone it's hard to go home babe
Skin and bones is all you are now babe
_
Been a ghost all of your life
Now you ?st in the night
_
So alone it's hard to go home babe
Skin and bones is all you are now babe

I don't know where we've been
Am C G Fmaj7
Could you tell me where we are again?
Am C G Fmaj7
And Jesus is my only friend
Am C G Fmaj7
No one else knows who I am
_
I know I'll never make it on the cross
Spent my days looking for what my daddy lost
He was too proud to have a boss
Sold himself out then he couldn't afford the cost
_
No one knows how he felt
Hung himself in the country jail
There were those who said he would burn in hell
I don't think they knew him very well

I don't know were we are
Fearful eyes don't see very far
Drivin' in my daddy's car
Ashtray full of his cigars
_
Is it real what I see?
His ghost is ridin' next to me
'Till he's gone I won't be free
From the burden of his misery
_
I know I'll never make it on the cross
Spent my days looking for what my daddy lost
He was too proud to have a boss
Sold himself out then he couldn't afford the cost
_
I don't know the neighbourhood
Mostly he was misunderstood
In his heart the bad beat the good
Used to be a time I'd come in if I could
_
Angel of love
Shine a light on us
I was born to be
Redemption's son

Angel of love
Shine a light on us
