Paul Kelly’s new album Life Is Fine attempts to recapture the feel and energy of some of his early records. Photograph: Dan Himbrechts/AAP. Kelly’s in a good place here – but if that makes Life Is Fine sound glib, it’s not. In what could be a reference to Courtney Barnett’s Elevator Operator, the narrator of the closing title track finds himself 16 flights up, contemplating suicide, only to step back. Life, as Connolly’s premature death showed, can be as fine as those thin, wiry leads which the guitarist threaded through classics like Before Too Long.
Paul Kelly has the soul of a poet, the heart of a rock and roller and the psyche of a renaissance man. How else to explain his last few records leading up to Life is Fine? There's The Merri Soul Sessions, an r&b tribute within which he was more conductor than featured performer. I'm not one of those who sets out to write a record, like writing for a year or two, then making an album that sums up that period of my writing. I write in a much more haphazard fashion: songs come to me at all angles, quite randomly, so I tend to write them as they come, then sort them like socks in a drawer; after a while, you get half a dozen or so that happen to work together, that talk to each other, and when that critical mass occurs, then I write.
