Among my favorites on this album are the folksy album-opener "Long Time Coming," which is a Springsteen-ish track, with Hiatt starting out acoustically. It slowly grows into full instrumentation with a great guitar solo from Doug Lancio in the middle part, before ending acoustically again. Then you have the thumping back porch blues of "Face Of God," a 12 bar track where Hiatt asks: "How much more suffering, Before you see the face of God," and also makes the harmonica howl. Then you have the cheerful "Marlene," a deceptively simple ditty as exemplified by lyrics like "Marlene, Marlene, when you call my name, Marlene, Marlene, like a summer rain," but it's an incredible catchy and for sure will make "... the blues run and hide."
"Wind Don't Have To Hurry" is a banjo-driven track that also has female backing vocals to flesh out the song (although the "Na Na Na Na" edges close to getting a tad repetitive). The hobo jazz of title track "Terms Of My Surrender," which has some of the wittiest lyrics on the album: "Sometimes love can be so wrong, Like a fat man in a thong" (okay, now to get that image out of my head!) and which is a bit reminisced of Randy Newman.Read more ›
On his last album, the excellent “Mystic Pinball”, Hiatt lamented the fact that the blues couldn’t find him. Well, they’ve certainly found him (or, perhaps more accurately, he’s found them) this time on a set of songs rooted firmly in that genre. Eschewing his electric guitar this is largely an exercise in acoustic country blues, often bringing to mind his “Crossing Muddy Waters” (heavens, could that really have been 14 years ago?)
It’s noticeable how some of the fire has now gone, along with the top-end of Hiatt’s vocal range (a rather unpredictable tool at the best of times), but that’s hardly surprising given his advancing years. This is a much gentler John Hiatt than we’ve become used to of late, although happily there’s no loss of quality in the songwriting. Lyrically, at least, he remains head and shoulders above much of what passes for the competition.
In what is a strong set across the board “Long Time Coming”, “Face of God”, “Wind Don’t Have To Hurry” “Baby’s Gonna Kick” and “Here To Stay” are especially memorable.
The old-time title track sounds like something that Bob Dylan might easily have slipped into “Love and Theft” without anyone even noticing the join. And the sheer political incorrectness of “Old People” pushes Hiatt firmly into Randy Newman territory. He can get away with it because…well, he now qualifies.
Effortless and enjoyable.
