"Perhaps the hardest rocking record of Cash's career (and this is a man who recorded for Sun Records in the '50s). Help from members of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers (who he covers) and Red Hot Chili Peppers. "Spiritual" is the most heartfelt performance I have ever heard and that is coming from somebody who rejects traditional Christianity."
"This album and its successor (see below) seperated Petty from the pack of classic rockers struggling to find success in the '90s, by throwing a dash of alternative rock into Petty's signature sound, courtesy of Rick Rubin."
"Just an acoustic guitar and Cash's voice, but its one of the most powerful recordings ever. If you own nothing else by Cash, buy the albums produced by Rick Rubin from 1994-2004 as well as At Folsom Prison and At San Quentin."
"Petty delves even further into the '90s alternative scene, covering Beck and Lucinda Williams, but the highlighs are his originals like "Walls", "Angel Dream", and "Grew Up Fast" (which is classic angsty punk with a rock edge)."
