Album reviews: Van Morrison | Pixies | Fiona Soe Paing
Van Morrison has made no secret that he just wasn’t made for these (recording) times, when painstaking perfectionism has long replaced live spontaneity, and there’s no guarantee that the albums will keep flowing. But in case we missed the memo, the title of this follow-up to 2012’s Born to Sing does sound like a bit of a pledge to keep on keeping on, one which is backed up with ample musical evidence that Morrison still has much to give.
