Delta 88

 

continued

In the opening track, "Ones and Zeros," Kline sings:

I'm waiting on a letter in a town without a name
Washing in a river but I never come clean
Living on a dollar, hoping something will remain
If only for a day


The band's new material — often set just to simple guitar or piano tracks — shows off Kline's melodic richness and curiosity. There are many moments of startling and poetic lyricism, and Kline gives it all to you almost reluctantly, drawing out the words, almost daring you to hear what he's saying. By the time a rocker, "P.S.," comes on — and it's the eighth track — you realize how hard you've been listening, almost holding your breath. Suddenly, exuberance . . . and you can't help but take a real deep breath and thank God once again for rock 'n' roll.

Delta 88 is at the Ark on Thursday, June 7.
