Why I Write

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I can't believe no one has reviewed this yet. It's been out for years and years. Well, since nobody else has spoken up, I'll do it. If you like folk/rock/pop, you should pick this album up, especially if you are into good songwriting. The melodies are infectious and the lyrics are top notch. There isn't a bad song on the whole album, but there are a few that really stand out(at least for me, they do.) "Ordinary Weekend" is one of them. The lyrics to this song are like reading a really good novel. Except you get a catchy melody to go with it. "Me Against Me" is another incredible track. It has a great feeling-lonely-late-at-night vibe to it. There are plenty of other tracks I could go on and on about like, "Dead Centre of Town", "The Original Miss Jesus", "Where The Bodies Are", but if I get started I'll go on forever. Let me just say that JWH is such a good writer that I'm not surprised he wrote a book. To wrap this up, if you are a JWH fan and you don't have this, get it. If you are unfamiliar with the man, picture a cross between Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello and you'll have some idea of what you're in for. I hope this helps."
