John Pitman Review: Sound of Silence, Miloš returns

The Montenegro-born guitarist Miloš has just released his fifth album, and the first in about 3 years. Sound of Silence (Decca) is, in a way, autobiographical: in 2016, just after the release of his Beatles-inspired disc, Blackbird, Miloš began experiencing a tightness in his hand that affected his ability to play. He eventually stepped away from his busy schedule of successful international concerts, and too the time to heal. He used this time to reacquaint himself with the simple joy of listening. Miloš heard old favorites in new ways (such as Simon and Garfunkel’s melancholy “The Sound of Silence”), and new songs by artists such as Portishead, Skylar Grey and The Magnetic Fields. He eventually regained his full playing ability, and now, with this new album, shares his own playing with listeners around the world once again. Only this time, he’s taking time to enjoy the silence between the notes.
