JohnH10Extraordinary work from an exceptional talent. Maybe normally a 9......but given the circumstances a 10 seems cheap.

KevinB8Great final testament of a dying legend.
NathanS.6Quite honestly, this album is overrated. Yes, I know that Zevon was pretty much on his deathbed during the recording of this album. Yes, I understand that this is part "last hurrah" project. part tribute album. But it's hardly the masterpiece it's hailed as. Zevon's deterioration at the hands of his illness clearly shows through on many of the tracks, most notably "Disorder in the House". This isn't a bad album, and by almost anyone else I would've rated it higher. But this is Warren Zevon, arguably one of the greatest songwriters of all time, and after comparing "The Wind" to the rest of his work, it's hardly the last memory I want of him.… Collapse
