TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 30 July 2013
Reading other reviews of this album that suggested this album made them feel sad, I couldn't help thinking that they may have been listening to a different album, unless the sadness expressed is a reflection of Johnny no longer being with us.

True it's not a "pop" album, but it like all the American albums it is packed with quality and the you could attribute a range of adjectives to the songs within. So for example:

"Ain't No Grave" - dramatic
"Redemption Day" - has a sense of urgency
"1 Corinthians 15:55" - poetic
"Satisfied Mind" - reflective
"Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream" - hopeful

The final song "Aloha Oe", which I know from the Elvis movie "Blue Hawaii", gives the impression to me that it was recorded by a man a man who was at peace with himself knowing that he was approaching the end of his days.

So I would say this final album is fully charged with different emotions, but "sad" is certainly not my overriding impression.

The album performed well in the charts on both sides of the Atlantic (US No.3 Billboard Top 200, No.2 County Albums, No.9 UK) and deservedly so.

I have thoroughly enjoyed acquiring and listening to the American albums from Johnny. I recommend the full set to anyone.
