On O Moon, Queen of Night On Earth Jonathan Richman sounds like he’s performing a private concert in a friend’s living room. Intimate and spare, the songs feature Richman’s voice and an acoustic guitar along with light percussion by Tommy Larkins on about half of the album. These minimalist arrangements put the focus on his distinct, Boston-accented voice and excellent, albeit quirky, lyrics, which are occasionally sung in Spanish or French. He’s witty, self-effacing, and wry on “If You Want to Leave Our Party Just Go” and “My Affected Accent,” tender and revealing on “Theses Bodies That Came to Cavort” and “The Bitter Herb,” and romantically poetic on “I Was the One She Came For,” “The Sea Was Calling Me Home,” and “It Was Time for Me to Be With Her.” Endearing in its directness, O Moon, Queen of Night On Earth is playful, engaging, and supremely confident all at once — all the hallmarks of a classic Richman release.
