Cale, John

Music For A New Society
Sealed 2016 180gm Reissue Remastered From The Original Master Tapes. The Download Exclusive Tracks Include Two Outtakes From The Original Recording Session Plus The Previously Unreleased Gem "Library Of Force." The Album Was, From A Musical Standpoint, Writes Allmusic, A Remarkable About-Face, Sounding Calm, Spare, And Spectral Where His Last Few Albums Had Been All Rant And Rage; The Arrangements Were Dominated By Cale's Open, Languid Keyboard Patterns, And There Was Far More Aural "White Space" In Their Framings Than He Had Permitted Himself Since The Academy In Peril. But Beyond The Cool, Reserved Exteriors Of Music For A New Society, One Finds A Handful Of Stories Of Terribly Damaged Lives; On Close Inspection, The Ethereal Opening Cut "Taking Your Life In Your Hands" Turns Out To Be The Story Of A Mother Gone On A Killing Spree, While "Sanities," "Thoughtless Kind," And "Damn Life" Are Full Of Dashed Hopes And Painful Emotional Betrayals. If The Approach To The Material Is A Good Bit Different Than What Most Fans Had Been Used To From Cale, The Results Were, If Anything, Among The Most Compelling Music Of His Career.
