Being a John Hiatt fan can often be a frustrating exercise. His album from last year, 'The Open Road' was a three-star record that promised more than it ultimately delivered. However, in what amounts to almost a rush-release, 'Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns' sees Hiatt back in full posession of mojo and with a bit of that ol' righteous indignation that once used to permeate the fabric of his records and had been absent for a while. The opening track, 'Damn This Town', sees Hiatt cast himslef as a fifty-eight year old still living at home with his mother, and boy is he unhappy about it. The fact that the lyric is lashed to one of Hiatt's grittiest tunes helps, and his vocal howl adds to the ire beautifully. He also shuffles his pack of styles and moods brilliantly, too, with songs such as 'Till I Get My Lovin' Back', a haunting country waltz ballad that again sees Hiatt in imperious lovelorn vocal form. Then you can go to the desperate 'Down Around My Place', a desolate piece that presses hard on the mordant pedal. 'Detroit Made' is a paean to a car (one of Hiatt's petrolhead anthems), and there's humour in here too, and a bit of wistful on the 'Adios to California'. 'When New York Had Her Heart Broke' is a song about the 9/11 events of ten years ago, a sensitive and stirring, but never mawkish closer that rounds out a simply superb album. Hats off to producer Kevin Shirley, who made his name producing the likes of Aerosmith. He enshrines Hiatt's best bunch of songs in a long while with a sympathetic sound palette that can be big and broad as well as soft and subtle. This album gets better and better with each listen, and I heartily recommend that you invest in this immediately. It gets five stars,'cause I can't give it six.

Everyone has a favourite pair of jeans, ones which always look good, feel right and which actually get better with age. How appropriate then for the great John Hiatt to name his new album after these durable garments since in musical terms his own longevity over nearly 60 years has been one marked by cranking up the quality button to the the highest level and broadly sticking around at that benchmark. With past glories like "Bring the family" (1987) and the essential "Crossing Muddy Waters" (2000) it remains one of life's enormous puzzles why Hiatt remains a minority taste but for those who have yet to sample his work thus far there is a chance to make amends by purchasing "Dirty jeans and Mudslide Hymns" since this seasoned campaigner is again near the top of his game. Ultimately those familiar with Hiatt works will already know the score as in this album you will get angry blues, soft country, good time rock n roll and a classic voice with a raspy southern drawl that emotes a lifetime of paying songwriting dues where sadly most of "hits" derive generally from covers of his work by other artists.

The album starts with a corker, a dirty swamp blues rock out entitled "Damn this town" where Hiatt spits out vitriol and raw emotion about his disillusionment with a certain locality which has delivered nothing but heartache. The anger subsides on the next song "Till I get my loving back" a classic country ballad full of haunting slide guitar and an emotive Hiatt vocal which will no doubt be covered down the years by people who know good music. As always he also throws in a couple of good time rockers with "Love that girl" and the joyous chugging auto song "Detroit Made" about a Buick Electra 225 being the prime examples.

John Hiatt's twentieth studio album, and his best since "Crossing Muddy Waters" eleven years ago. After a series of largely underwhelming releases since then, last year's "The Open Road" marked a welcome return to form and this new set reveals his mojo still working very nicely, thank you.

Hiatt's most notable work across a long career has come from those sessions in which he hasn't shouldered the production duties on his own. A consummate writer, singer and performer, he hasn't always brought the best out of his own songs when alone at the controls. Here, famed Aerosmith / Journey / Iron Maiden / Dream Theater producer Kevin Shirley smooths out just a few of the rougher edges and sprinkles just enough magic dust over the proceedings without ever diluting the essence of what makes the artist tick, the haunting "Down Around My Place" as good an example as any.

Stylistically, the album harks back to Hiatt's golden years on A&M, "I Love That Girl" "All The Way Under" "Detroit Made" "Adios To California" and "Don't Wanna Leave You Now" all prime instances of the master's art.

"Train To Birmingham" probably isn't about the dubious pleasures of an off-peak return from St. Pancras to New Street, although the line "But I die a little slower on the train to Birmingham" did have me wondering...

The set closes with "When New York Had Her Heart Broke", a moving 9/11 lament and proof, if any were needed, that John Hiatt still has plenty left in the tank.

For me this is the best album i have heard this year.
Every track sounds fresh and new, but yet so familiar like iv'e known them all for years.
This album is going to be classic.
