The Master Returns,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mystic Pinball (Audio CD)
With something like 25 albums since his debut in the early 1970's John Hiatt took some time to find his writing voice and style, but since the sublime Bring The Family and Slow Turning in the late 1980's through a succession of strong releases through the 1990's and early 2000's, Hiatt continues to excel and churn out high quality music and songs of quite breathtaking beauty (take as examples 'Have A Little Faith In Me' and 'Lipstick Sunset' from Bring The Family right through to 'Down Around My Place' from 2011's beautiful Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns. Mystic Pinball could simply be an extension of Dirty Jeans and continues Hiatt's catalogue of excellence. If you have never taken the time to listen and explore Hiatt's music I can assure you the investment will be truly worthwhile. The man is a treasure and I for one rank him as one of the all-time greats that so few people this side of the water have heard of.
