My review of the new Johnny Cash album, American VI: Ain’t No Grave, was posted to Popdose today:
“Johnny Cash spent his entire career speaking to and for the common man. Whether it was in his lyrics, or the way he dressed in black, he never forgot where he came from. On American VI: Ain’t No Grave (American Recordings/Lost Highway), the sixth and final volume of his unforgettable collaboration with producer Rick Rubin, Cash, fully aware that the end was near for him, had already moved beyond this world in terms of his music. Instead of speaking directly to his audience as he always had, he looked past us, or maybe above us, to the next phase. The album is a direct communication between a dying man and whatever comes next.”
