7digital What we said: Randy Newman has largely kept his solo career on the back-burner for the best part of a decade, forging ahead instead with his successful sideline in film soundtracks, including penning the Oscar-winning original song for ‘Toy Story 3’. It’s unsurprising, then, that the septuagenarian songwriting legend draws on those experiences for this on this long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s Harps and Angels. Alongside delivering lush, cinematic arrangements – often drawing on jazz and blues – Dark Matter is a set packed full of sardonic character studies. And whether lampooning Putin or imagining Sonny Boy Williamson sat in heaven observing his imitators, Newman reminds listeners once more he's a raconteur bar none.
