iTunes Review

Above all else, John Hiatt is a songwriter. As a performer, he’s tinkered with his approach and proved to be a true lifer unlikely to stop until he can no longer play guitar. Hiatt’s also an absolute sponge for music and ideas, whether he's adapting Motown love songs or tackling Bruce Springsteen–like heartland rockers. It all filters through and turns into that John Hiatt sound. For 2014’s Terms of My Surrender, Hiatt has lead guitarist Doug Lancio handle the production for a largely acoustic approach. Lancio plays some beautiful slide guitar. Previous albums employed the slicker, commercial-oriented Kevin Shirley, so Terms of My Surrender is a return of sorts. “Long Time Comin’” captures the beautiful, heartfelt, somber tone of Hiatt at his finest, while “Nobody Knew His Name” lets Hiatt draw up one his hard-luck loner sketches. “Baby’s Gonna Kick” percolates with a tense electric blues groove, complete with terse harmonica. Hiatt’s dark humor winks at us from the vantage point of “Old People.”

Terms of My Surrender

"Sometimes love can be so wrong, like a fat man in a thong." Another great lyric from John Hiatt.

Hiatt has always been amazing, but Terms of Surrender (the song) is one of the best of the year, remindful of the best stuff Dylan was doing and getting recognized for 10 years ago. I do not tire of this song & get a big smile when it comes up on one of my mix playlists!

.....excellent, stunning, singer & song writer!

This will be an amazing album for John! He is by far one of the best singer song writers of all time. I've never been disappointed by John, and it again looks, and sounds simply wonderful!
Thanks John, and hopefully I'll be lucky enough to see you on tour! Hurry on up to Michigan, cheers!

John Hiatt's sales have never quite matched his reputation. Hiatt's songs were covered successfully by everyone from Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap, and Dr. Feelgood to Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night, and the Neville Brothers, yet it took him 13 years to reach the charts himself. Of course, it took him nearly that long to find his own style. Hiatt began his solo career in 1974, and over the next decade he ran through a number of different styles, from rock & roll to new wave pop, before he finally settled...
