Review by Gary Hill
John Flynn’s latest release sees him stretching out a bit. Mind you the majority of the disc is focused on his typical folk/country basis, but he opens it with a jazz ballad piece and finds other chances to move the boundaries of his music in new directions. Once again Kris Kristofferson joins him on several tracks. Kathy Mattea also shows up this time around. Flynn’s lyric writing is on a par with any of the folk greats of by gone eras, and I really enjoy his music, too. Whether you agree with his convictions or not you have to appreciate the passion with which he expresses them.
