Johnny Cash: American III: Solitary man

The Man In Black shows hints of gray on American III: Solitary Man, his first studio album since being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1997. While the inevitability of aging has been the downfall of many of his contemporaries, ending usually in dismissal and often in death, Johnny Cash's dark convictions and powerful presence have gone from rough hardwood to solid stone. The stark beauty of his 1994 release American Recordings and the warm, friendly collaborations on 1996's Unchained combine on this album to create two distinct moods: one of living room jam sessions with invited friends, and another of stark solo (and near-solo) songs highlighting Cash's years and stories.
Like his two previous studio albums, Solitary Man is sparsely produced by Rick Rubin, and continues the themes of love, faith, and loneliness that their previous collaborations have chillingly embraced. Partnering once again with Tom Petty, the two join together on Petty's own "I Won't Back Down" and the Neil Diamond-penned title track. Cash also lays his lonesome hands on U2's "One" and reunites with fellow outlaw Merle Haggard on the stubborn "I'm Leavin' Now," which could serve as the soundtrack for the notorious photo of Cash's sneering middle finger published in Billboard after his Grammy award. These duets and well-known covers show an inviting side of Johnny Cash. But the real highlights of the album are those reminiscent of his American Recordings songs; they feature just the man and his guitar, with nothing else to clutter the story. The creaks and despair of the vaudeville song "Nobody" tell of a man who has become hardened by his solitude, while the Palace hymn "I See a Darkness" soars with the passion of a thousand gospel choirs, even though there are only two men singing.

In the liner notes, Cash writes: "The song is the thing that matters. Before I can record, I have to hear it, sing it, and know that I can make it feel like my own, or it won't work. I worked on these songs until I felt like they were my own." Although at times it is difficult to hear past Tom Petty's growl or Sheryl Crow's young harmonies in the more popular songs he covers, the obscure prison songs and country ballads he has chosen to interpret sound as honest and heartfelt as his own compositions. At age 68, his warm baritone may waver but his passion never does. — Zac Johnson - Greger

American III.
- Nietzsche

På den näst sista av de redan klassiska American Recordings-skivor som gavs ut medan Johnny Cash fortfarande var i livet (en femte postum platta i serien släppets ett par år efter hans död 2003) hörs en av sjukdom allt hårdare märkt artist. Hans röst börjar bli skröplig och försvagad. Samtidigt finns det paradoxalt nog något i detta som gör skivan än mer brinnande angelägen. Cash må ha en svagare röst här, men den är samtidigt så djupt personlig, sårbar och brännande nära att man lyssnar andäktigt och koncentrerat på varje ton han sjunger fram.
På plattan fortsätter Cash, varsamt sekonderad av producent Rick Rubin, att ömsom tolka samtida artisters kända låtar och ömsom egna låtar samt mindre kända covers. I den förra kategorin finns högst originella och avskalade versioner av ”I Want Back Down” (Tom Petty), ”One” (U2) och ”The Mercy Seat” (Nick Cave). I den senare gruppen hörs låtar som ”Country Trash”, ”Nobody”, Before my Times” och duetten med Merle Haggard i ”I’m Leavin’ Now” samt den grymt starka ”I See a Darkness” (skriven av Will ”Bonny Prince Billy” Oldham).
Men covers av kända låtar eller ej; allt det som Cash tillsammans med Rubin valde ut här för att sätta på vax bär en mästares prägel. Cash förvandlar alla låtar till sina egna och han gör det med total
auktoritet. - Anders P
