John Wesley Harding – The Sound Of His Own Voice

- by Thomas

John Wesley Harding sure knows how to pick his friends… on “The Sound Of His Own Voice” he is backed up by the Decemberists, Peter Buck, Rosanne Cash and Scott McCaughey among others. Not that he needs all those big names to draw attention to his songs, the songs more than speak for themselves.

As happy and poppy as they may sound, the lyrics are not. But they’re smart and sometimes they sting a little. It’s a winning combination and with this album he’s crashing right into Elvis Costello’s backyard. Just have a listen to “Captain Courageous”, “There’s A Starbucks (Where The Starbucks Used To Be)” and the bittersweet “The Way We Weren’t” and try not to be won over.
Score: 7.5 out of 10
