10 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This is where John Hiatt traded in his angry-young-man status, finding new hope in sobriety and salvation in love and family. If that sounds boring, then you haven't heard songs like the Stonesy rocker "Thank You Girl" or the rollicking road-tripper "Memphis in the Meantime." It didn't hurt that Hiatt put together a world-class band with Nick Lowe, Jim Keltner, and Ry Cooder, then got them all to play like garage rockers. The ballad "Stood Up" wraps his deepest confessions into six intense minutes.
