Matthew Ryan – In the Dusk of Everything

  • November 7, 2012

Matthew Ryan completes his trilogy of personal introspective albums that began with 2010’s Dear Lover with his latest, In the Dusk of Everything. The ambient textures of last year’s superb I Recall Standing As If Nothing Could Fall has been replaced with a sparse acoustic sound. Essentially, In the Dusk of Everything is a folk record that recounts the story of two people wrestling with universal themes of mortality, intimacy, despair, trust and the uncertainty that life brings. A few standouts include: “And So It Goes”, “And It’s Such a Drag”, and “The Events at Dusk.” In the Dusk of Everything delivers satisfying closure to the trilogy; it is an album both timeless and stunningly spare. – Written by JFelton
