Warren Zevon 

The Wind

Published September 25, 2003.Warren ZevonThe Wind (Artemis)While his recent death is liable to make any praise look like lip service, in his last work Warren Zevon truly delivers one of his greatest albums. The Wind poses interesting similarities to George Harrison’s posthumously released Brainwashed. Both albums are loose in style, with an understated positivity that accentuates a hidden knowledge in the music. Zevon chooses not to spend the record staring death in the eye. He instead revels in life, leaving a document of honesty and true emotion. —Matt Charlton
