My Favorite Picture of You
by Guy Clark
Released: Jul 2013
Label: Dualtone Music Group, Inc.
Age isn't the subject of any of Picture's 11 songs, but it colors all of them, with Guy Clark's songwriting reflecting 71 years of lessons learned and unlearned and his weathered voice fragmenting as soon as it leaves his mouth. "Heroes," for instance, narrates a soldier's PTSD with the clarity of someone who has seen this story play out many times before, and when on "Hellbent on a Heartbreak" he admits, "I should know better but I guess I don't," you know he knows he never will. "Try again. Fail better," wrote Beckett, and it's hard to imagine anyone's failures sounding better than Clark's.
