Reckon is an explosion from Collett, encompassing his many diverse years in music in a strongly solidified manner. For over ten years, Jason Collett has been immersed in music and remains one of the most important Canadian singer-songwriters.
Reckon is special as it seems to reflect on the twisted roads, observing economic downtown and understanding the sense of loss and its many faces. Each song is thoughtful, patient and tightly wound but slowly lends itself to listeners and invites them in.
Furthermore, a strong and purposeful sense of opinion correlated with the confusing and ambiguous state of our economy and politics is present while remaining soft and romantic.
Reckon is also a quintessential “mood album”, perfectly paired with a celebration of solidarity in a room drenched with candlelight and melancholy. Although some songs are absolutely better than others, the album works as a full piece and is generally fluid and enjoyable.
Additionally, Reckon is produced by Howie Beck and showcases collaborations with the enchanting Afie Jervanan (Bahamas), Zeus, Basia Bulat and Kevin Drew, which makes it quite the Canada heavy hitter party.
