My first fling with Mr. Prine was earlier this year, when a randomly selected download of 1991's 'The Missing Years' wound up being quite the excellent eye-opener; singlehandedly solidifying him as a stupidly supreme songwriter who's earned his all-time-great country cred. Flash to present day and he is now around 20 albums deep and 71 years old, frailer-n-froggier after throat surgery and a couple bouts with cancer, calmly funny and casually intimate as ever. A tight ten tracks and abundant bareness showcases his skill at keeping it simple -- and barring rhyming "way I feel" four times over on the hopefully-sarcastic God ballad, still a master of the easy rhyme. Dig the 'uh huh's after getting mail at his domestic dream house/in his own head, the one that may subtly be about chasing your dick around circa 1967 before becoming a near-blind grandpa pissin' the bed, when he's knocking on your door for some help with a can-o-beans. Definition of Boundless Love: "If I came home would you let me in? / Fry me some porkchops and forgive my sin". Happily awaiting heaven too, he's got a master plan even. Which amongst the family-finding and forgiveness includes, yep that's right, smoking a cigarette that's nine miles long.
