3.0 out of 5 stars Was it really, really worth that long wait ??, 24 Feb 2010
This review is from: American VI: Ain't No Grave (Audio CD)
Nearly seven years have passed since Johnny left us and nearly 4 since American 5 came out, 4 reviewers have preceded me and gave 5 stars to this latest and probably last CD in the series,
With all due respect, and Johnny Cash deserves a lot of our respect, I can only give this three stars. Yes this is tastefully done. No it is not all doom and gloom. Perhaps we simply expected too much.
Somehow it seems as if Rick Rubin was not as much involved in this latest project as he was in the preceding 5 CDs and in the "Unearthed" project.
Johnny, even in the year before his death was of course incapable of performing badly, but I doubt whether the man himself would have allowed tracks such as Cool Water and Aloha Oe to see the light of day. They are okay but simply not good enough.
I am not sorry I bought this, of course not, but to anybody starting on a path of discovery on the Johnny Cash's oeuvre, I'd say buy American 4, buy Unearthed and remember the Man in Black as he was at his best.
