"Everything Changes" was Lesley Duncan's third album, and the first following her departure from CBS. A couple of years ago, the title track appeared on the soundtrack of Margot at the Wedding, making it the only one of Lesley's GM recordings to have reached the digital age.
There was talk, years ago, of "Everything Changes", "Moon Bathing", and "Maybe It's Lost" being officially reissued on CD. Sadly, it amounted to nothing, and the whole notion appears to have lost momentum forever.
This album is a typically thoughtful, reflective piece of work from Lesley (and, as before, then-husband Jimmy Horowitz who produces and plays piano). I happen to prefer Lesley's last three albums to her first two; I hear a greater musical fluidity and confidence in them. Some of the most impressive moments here are "The Serf", "My Soul", "Watch The Tears", and the title track. "Everything Changes" definitely has that autumnal vibe - the songs have an elegiac feel that's occasionally magical.
