The Open Road

The Open Road by John Hiatt
Released: Mar 2010
Label: New West Records
The Open Road repudiates everything Hiatt embraced on 2008's Same Old Man. Instead of coming to terms with the wrinkles and gray hair invading his countenance, he's launched a counteroffensive. Right from the opening title track, a tale of living large on the open road replete with a reference to Mardi Gras beads, Hiatt feels like rock and rolling and living large. Of course, this is John Hiatt we're talking about, which means just beneath the surface lurks a faint, but very real, whiff of dread.
