5.0 out of 5 stars The iconic Country star's posthumous studio album, recorded in the early 1980s, shines brightly, 3 April 2014
This review is from: Out Among The Stars (Audio CD)
Understandably, posthumous releases arouse skepticism at the possible prospect of weak, second-rate (or worse) material. But Johnny Cash fans can rest assured that "Out Among The Stars" far from puts the "Man In Black" in a bad light, and that the majority of the songs shine brightly. None more so than the cinematic lead single "She Used To Love Me A Lot", a Folk-ish, acoustic ballad of such high quality that it's difficult to fathom that it was never used or re-recorded for another project.

The dobro-infused "Out Among The Stars" tells the tale of a frustrated, jobless small-town adolescent, who holds up a Texas liquor store. "Baby Ride Easy" is a spirited duet with wife June Carter Cash, a cover of a Country song that was recorded by her daughter Carlene Carter in 1980, "If I Told You Who It Was" is a humorous, sassy and salacious account of a fan's encounter with a famous Country star, and the bittersweet and ironic "I Drove Her Out Of My Mind" is classic Cash and harks back to his old outlaw songs. "Out Among The Stars" showcases Johnny Cash as a legendary Country star, who was far from being a shadow of his former self.
