Weakest

I love Zevon, first concert I saw when I was 18 was Zevon. And I saw him on his last tour, and almost every tour in between. This music is good, but to be honest I would suggest everything in his catalog first. But "Genius" and "Hockey Song" are two of his great works. At least with emusic you try those first. "Laissez-Moi Tranquille" is the only Zevon track I just can't listen to.

Warren at his best

This is definitely my favorite Warren Zevon album (although I haven't heard all of his records yet). The first six tracks are all very strong. I'm not sure which one I like best. "Laissez-Moi" and "I Have to Leave" are the weakest songs on this album, but it finishes strong with the prophetic "My Ride's Here" a song that would have fit perfectly on his last album. Definitely worth downloading the entire album.

Good Stuff in Small Doses

Rockfish

I'm a W.Z. fan from the '70's when he was dangerous and controversial. This has some of that fire and cynicism but tempered by the maturity of age and illness. Therefore this may especially good for those familiar with his earlier stuff. Honestly his voice grates on me after awhile but the songs are so good I'm willing to take it. Favorites are "The Hockey Song" (perfect hockey anthem), "My Ride's Here" (weird metaphysical lyrics but it's a cool tune), and "Keep Me in Your Heart" (a perfect farewell).

They Say All Music Guide

Warren Zevon is famous for black-hearted comedy tunes like “Werewolves of London” and “Excitable Boy,” but his best work is a good bit deeper and more penetrating, and 2000′s Life’ll Kill Ya was an impressive return to form, a song cycle about aging and death that was played less for easy laughs than for the bitter humor derived from the knowledge that no one, the artist included, will get out of this world alive. Zevon’s follow-up, 2002′s My Ride’s Here, for the most part recalls Zevon albums like Mr. Bad Example or Mutineer. My Ride’s Here also finds Zevon collaborating with a number of writers from outside the world of music (not the first time he’s done this; novelist Tom McGuane co-wrote “The Overdraft” on Envoy). Novelist Carl Hiaasen co-wrote “Basket Case,” an ode to an insane girlfriend, while gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson collaborates on “You’re a Whole Different Person When You’re Scared.” Sportswriter Mitch Albom, of all people, turns in the best collaboration on the album, “Hit Somebody! (The Hockey Song).” The sardonic “Genius” and “Sacrificial Lambs,” and the title cut — a meditation on mortality that would have fit in on Life’ll Kill Ya — are strong and remind listeners of just how talented Zevon still is. – Mark Deming
