Excerpts from the Devotion liner notes:What struck me about Hiss Golden Messenger-and my absorption in these early records wasinstantaneous-is that Taylor's songs are completely and unfailingly honest about how stupidand frustrating it is to be a person. But then, of course, he finds magnificence anyway:"Hallelujah anyhow" is how he put it later.
