“‘You can’t hold on to things,’ Loren Connors says. ‘With great happiness comes great sorrow.’ So brings us to the spectrum that is Departing of a Dream Vol. III: Juliet. Like the previous volumes, Juliet is a tribute of sorts; and here the focus is clearly love, the kind of love willing to face desolation and ultimately death. Recorded in Connors’ Brooklyn apartment, his electric guitar emits a pulsing web of blues notes that settle against the utterly intimate human ambience of a creaking chair, tumbling objects, smoke curled absence and his signature canvas of tape hiss. The story of Juliet and her Romeo is told in a lyrical outpouring that Connors has rarely shown in recent years, a style associated which his Rooms (1990) and Evangeline (1999) albums. Though the 20-minute album opener contains a devastating core of mire and foreboding that only Connors can create.”
