The True One

Song Review by

A welcome touch of lightness among an album of progressive and adventurous songs (No Other), "The True One" is one of Gene Clark's more accessible songs. A simple parable on the law of nature and the concept of karma, Clark's slightly world-weary wisdom shines through here. Musically, it has a wonderfully hooky melody and a fine chorus, all wrapped up in some simple and effective country/folk changes.
