I couldn't let this one pass , i mean there's a reviewer on here saying that on this album "the songwriting doesn't stand out " . Come on , seriously ? This is a Grammy winning album by one of the finest singer/songwriters to ever pick up a pen or a guitar , it's absolutely fantastic !
As for John's singing , well , i admit that it's a voice that could be politely described as an acquired taste but hell , when did that stop guys like Dylan or Tom Waits or Rod Stewart ? Never that's when .
Anyway , John Prine's debut album may remain his best effort but this one is a fine contender for 2nd place , rich , varied , subtle and beautiful in equal measure , it stands the test of both time and repeated plays . Musically diverse and probably his best effort at singing in different voices , this is one that every Prine fan should own , a real winner in every sense.

Those of you who haven't enjoyed the amazing work of John Prine, I envy you. You have a massive back catalogue to explore. You'll find witty, sensitive, insightful, heart-breaking lyrics delivered with such a warm, down-home voice, it'll come as no surprise that he's one of the most respected songwriters of modern times. He never seemed to play the fame game, he left that to other people who covered his songs.

The Missing Years is singer-songwriting at its absolute best. Every track is a perfectly constructed thing of stunning beauty - and I mean <every> track. Sadly, he's no longer with us, but luckily for us, his songs are. Happy trails John and thanks for all the pleasure you've given so many of us over the years...

Missing Years pushes John Prine's creative peak into a new decade with one of the most consistent albums of his career. The arrangements are bright, fresh and original, tailored for the song and John's unique voice. The production provides him with some of the best musicians in the business. The best thing about the overall production is the way it brings John's songwriting and vocal front and center. Each song spotlights what John does best with irony, humor, satire and some brilliant storytelling. It's been 15 years since this albums' release and he's managed to put out another consistently fine album Fair & Square in 2005. The highlight moments on Missing Years includes the title track in which he humorously combines his autobiography with that of the Jesus' Missing Years, "Picture Show," with allusions of James Dean and the ultimate divorce song, "All The Best." This one went on to win a well-deserved Grammy. But, don't take the U.S. music industry's word for it; give this one a listen and you'll understand.

I saw John perform many of the songs from this album in an open-air concert in Kentucky.
He writes his personality into his music and the sheer good-hearted exuberance of many of his songs is just the way he comes across on stage.
Thanks, John, for some happy memories.
