Johnny Cash was a legend in his own lifetime. Personally, I prefer his later material as I feel as he aged, his voice took on even more soul and emotion which pours out of every moment of this album.
The 4th album in his 'American' series (and the last to be released in his lifetime), this album features some of the greatest cover songs I've ever heard. The best example for me would be his cover of Nine Inch Nails 'Hurt', which Cash makes his own with ease, outshining the original with his heartfelt lyrics and emotional musical swells.
Some other great moments are the opening song 'Man Comes Around' (a song of his own), 'I Hung My Head' (originally penned by Sting), and the Beatles classic 'In My Life'. But to be honest, although these are my own personal stand out tracks, the album as a whole is fantastic. The closing track 'We'll Meet Again' takes on even more poignancy considering it was the last track of the last album released in his lifetime. A fitting album for Cash, which features a feast of musical gems.
