Biography

Forty years into his recording career, John Hiatt has chosen to title his 22nd studio album, Terms of My Surrender. Surrender? Is that as in Cheap Trick? Or Appomattox? Hiatt laughs, tentatively, at the choice.

“It’s my Appomattox,” he says, wryly. “Really I don’t know where it came from, that idea of trying to arrange the terms of my surrender. I ... Read more in Amazon's John Hiatt Store

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite CDs ever July 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is an album that would be in my 5 top list to bring on an island ...and I own 500+ CDs. I have all of JH's albums and this continues to be my absolute favorite and the only one of his on my top-5-island-choices. That's how much this has affected me. The album is a very reflective and spiritual body of work and I feel profoundly moved by this album.
I would say that if you like your JH as a southern folk rocker best, than this album may come off as a bit off-kilter, or even soft, new-ageish (it's not!) or pretentious.
I would say that you almost have to have an appreciation of Native American spiritual/religious beliefs/concepts to appreciate the spiritual insights of the writing in this work.
JH makes references to time, spirits, nature, in the Native American sensibilty of how each are intertwined and affect our reality of things.
This album first and foremost in my opinion is about the writing. The music is like icing on the cake, which on some songs are softly Native American-feeling in tempo (Seven Little Indians, Thirty Years of Tears, Listening to Old Voices).
There are few "rocker" pieces here but it's again the terrific writing here that simply really blows my mind. All the songs are incredibly poetic in the imagery that gets painted.
I cried the first time I heard Listening to Old Voices -- a very beautiful piece about the realization of how beautiful life is both in the real and spiritual world. There is a very Zen-like quality that JH draws in this song. 13 years later the song (and the album) still affects me profoundly with each listen.
The title track also makes references to time and how we and the spirits weave in and out of it together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stolen Moments October 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was the first CD I heard from John Hiatt. I've bought every CD since. He's like your best buddy, your brother, the nice guy you wish you'd meet, etc. Great music. Great lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Biatt Hiatt October 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you had to pin me down over my favorite Hiatt album than this would very narrowly win from all the others. Most sheep would have you believe Bring the Family or Slow Turning are Hiatt's definitive albums but I think this album is Hiatt reaching perfect balance. Combining, country, blues and rock with John's vocal at it's best and to my mind some of his strongest lirics. This album is It!! Buy It!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever a Classic June 26, 2003
By jbembe
Format:Audio CD
Wow, John Hiatt's Stolen Moments. How can I write a review about this album? I don't think words can portray the depth of meaning this album has in our family as I was growing up. The songs are true genius and this is an album devoted to topics of love (Real Fine Love, Through Your Hands), family ties, bonds and relationships (Seven Little Indians, Stolen Moments!) growing up and becoming a man (Back of My Mind), being a father, and so much inbetween. Mr. Hiatt is an excellent musician, and I have owned several other albums of his, but this album is the one that I always come back to. To me the album could not be more perfect and every song and word and chord was sang and cheered on many a family road trips to camping, hiking, and vacations. It will forever be completely tied with great memories of my baptism, vacations, family outings and growing up. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mountian of Music Suprisingly Overlooked! February 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Easily the most overlooked CD by Hiatt. In an era when we are lucky to find 2 or 3 well written, singable and honest songs on a CD, Hiatt comes through with 12 that meet this criteria. From the rousing "Child Of the Wild Blue Yonder" to the beauty of "Through Your Hands" and the heartfelt storytelling of "Seven Little Indians", John Hiatt scores big each time he reaches out to us with his gravel filled vocals. As well, production here is in a class by itself allowing perfect arrangemtns to be delivered by quality musicians in an upfront, unobstructed manner. Sadly, record labels no longer strive for what this musical work delivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Crafted Hiatt Masterpiece December 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to chose a favorite Hiatt album, but especially difficult to decide which is the best from the "Recovery Trilogy": Bring the Family, Slow Turning and Stolen Moments. The greatness of this particular album, is that the writing is so mature and the stories in the songs so moving; it culminates all the promise and greatness displayed in all of Hiatt's previous work. In fact, I have often felt that this is actually an example of the great American novel in musical format: The opener "Real Fine Love" is a preface to the story that the rest of the songs develop. After that, "Seven Little Indians" and "Child of the Wild Blue Yonder" develop the central characters of Hiatt and his wife by discussing their past with beautiful imagery sung sweetly over elegantly simple music. The other songs develop their relationship: their meeting, their falling in and out of love as the world around them changes. It moves you through their lives until the happy-ending, toe-tapping closer of "One Kiss." This all makes it seem as though one couldn't listen to any of the songs separately, or that the album is a trite "rock opera," which is far from true. Each song, is in fact it's own "chapter" and can stand alone, if you have the willpower to listen to only one Hiatt song and not have to keep on listening... and I've met very few people who have.
