So Pure....
Eric M. Saczawa | Northampton, MA | 12/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're a fan of modern "roots" music - quality guitar-based music with at least a hint of blues, folk, country, or rock (or a combo in many cases) - you've got get this. And let it grow on you. And grow. And grow. It will! Walk On is an incredible journey of haunting lyrics & moods, symbolism, nature, stories, humor, and wit. All songs have at least one of these themes, and several could cross into more than one of the themes. Lyrically, it is very poetic - just the words with no music could be published into a book of poetry! There are fast and slow, accoustic & electric - even a few rockers! Some of my favorites (and my own interpretations) include: The title track - an absolutely hauntingly moody sound, about regrets; "As Good As She Could Be," a rocker with a message that wealth can't buy happiness; "Dust Down a Country Road," about Second Thoughts; and "Shredding the Document," a sarcastic rocker that would appear to mirror some of Hiatt's own contract dealings with the business side of music-making! That's four faves, but I would not hit the skip button on a single song here. Buy it and come up with four faves of your own!"
Rock and roll may actually still live

"I am a 49 year old guy who does not listen to too much created in the last 25 years. And I certainly don't give out five stars to most of it. I listen to this one. And I give it five stars unequivocally. I even sing along, and play my air guitar (I've faded a little there). Music like the music that got us all excited back "in the day" (as my 14 year old calls it). Great melodies, rock hard band, and lyrics that actually can haunt and cut to the bone, when they don't make you laugh. I decided to try Hiatt only because of the great reviews I found on Amazon, and I have not been disappointed. Many great songs, although current favoitie is Cry Love. It will probably change tomorrow."
Fabulous album from top to bottom

"I was not a John Hiatt fan and I heard it played in a record store and got hooked. This album has more good songs than most "greatest hits" albums. "Native Son" was played on the 1997 season finale of "Homicide" and is a stirring and powerful song. "Ethylene" and "Your Love is My Rest" are great country-type tunes. And to top it all off, you even get Bonnie Raitt on back-up vocals on "I Can't Wait," that alone is worth buying this album for. Great Stuff."
