The long awaited Jack Wagner album is a raw, emotional and beautiful album which includes the long awaited Right Key. Broken is my favorite as well as Lonely Night. All songs are written by Jack. This is a can't miss.

A Thoughtful, Reflective Collection


"On The Porch" is about a journey from surface level examination to considerations of the deeper, more meaningful "stuff of life." The bookending with the up tempo "Drivin' Miss Daisy" and the Rendered Soul, Raw "Broken" illustrates this poignantly.

Several of these songs predate this album's release by several years and I find myself drawn to many of those (e.g., The Right Key, Someone Is You, You and Me, etc.) more than some of the newer offerings, but the searing honest of the new "Lonely Night" wins me over to a considerable extent.

"Fantasy" functions as a lyrical companion piece to "Rain Comes Down" in the exploration of the sought after relationship as a construct with no real foundation, ultimately. I respect that exploration as a listener--the songwriter has come by the realizations set forth in these songs the hard way and they feel like a reward for him and those of us who've joined him on the metaphorical porch from which he shares these insights. Wagner lands gently on these song epistles and invites the listener to come in without presuming to preach. It's an unassuming story in that way.

"Broken" is worth the price of admission--and I'd have bought the album for this song alone. The lyrical depth and acknowledgement it gives the listener feels like a gift--one I was humbled to receive as the unseen audience for what Mr. Wagner has called his "spiritual awakening." "On The Porch" is worth more than a polite listen; the album deserves the same depth of exploration that each song was given in its inception.
