5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Return to Form August 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There's something to be said for playing to your strengths. John Wesley Harding's latest is 58 minutes of pure strength. The singing is clear and emotive, the playing crisp and complex without overwhelming the song, and the songs are simply his best set in a very, very long time.

He's done little to change his folk-rock template in terms of songwriting and singing, but somehow still finds a way to make it all ring true. If he were more autobiographical I might think of him as a British Loudon Wainwright, but that would be doing a disservice to both of them. Suffice to say that everything here works--the songs vary in tempo, there are no missteps lyrically, and his trademark wit is firmly in place, and is brilliant.

From the opener "My Favorite Angel," a humorous lament from God to Lucifer ("You put yourself at the top of the VIP list"), through the strangely joyful "The End" (which, oddly enough, is in the middle of the album), to the semi-autobiographical (and quite funny, even to a non-fan)"Top of the Bottom," this album simply doesn't stop.

It's bright, sparkling folk-rock and pop with a sharp wit and just enough cynical undertones to keep things interesting. Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars JWH at this best October 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really was surprised by this release from one of our excellent singer songwriters. Just when you think the well might be running dry, you get to hear another CD full of well-crafted lyrics. The bonus live CD is alone worth the price. This is not just for those of us that have listened to JWH over the years. It would be a great choice for first-time fans.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a single song was ipod worthy January 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a John Wesley Harding fan, and was disappointed in this release. It's not a departure from his normal style of music, it's just that it's missing any memorable melodies, hooks, rhythms, whatever. I dislike it on the first hearing, and left it alone for a few months, and just now reviewd it again, song by song, to see if any one of them could merit being added to the ipod, bot not a single song seemed worthy of hearing again.
