Country music has a long memory. Decades after the death of Hank Williams, he remains stenographic for the musical spirit, still quoted in songs that do not match his postal price. Williams is not the only figure whose myth casts a shadow over the earth. Johnny Cash appeared as a rebellious totem for the country's top singers and remains a clear cornerstone for trumpers from other countries such as Colter Wall. Johnny Cash's oldest daughter, Rosanne Cash never escaped her father – she covered her "Big River" Right or wrong, 1980 LP, which started decades of untouchable albums. But she was trying to define it independently. During the eighties of the last century, it launched a new wave and rocks rock in streamlined bills, and Nashville left it completely in the nineties of the last century, flaunting a creative and romantic relationship with John Levental and settling in New York.
Money did not start counting with her father's musical heritage until her death in 2003. Much of this process involved studying the past. 2009 A list, she covered the songs her father had said she should have known with her heart, such as Harlan Howard Country Classic "Heartaches by Number" and Bob Dylan "Girl from the North." At the Grammy-winning Rijeka and the Nile five years later, her roots in the American South, revealing her myths and music; was as close to anything as ever. With the new one He remembers everything, Cash takes these lessons and applies them to the present, creating an album that solves the turmoil of that moment by linking it to the past.
Again working with Leventhom, Cash muddies up clean lines of Rijeka and the Nile, choosing an atmosphere above the sand. All soft dresses and muted rhythms are shaggy and not dreamy. These humiliated sounds fit into expensive songs that deal with compromises, loss and enduring love, those things that shape an adult. Women telling Cash's songs here feel the weight of their previous decisions and are clearly looking at the current situation. But He remembers everything It's not a current album: Cash looks at the bigger picture, as all the dreams of dreams and little gains add to life.
There are Exceptions: At "8 Gods Of Harlem," three chords again and again overturn the delicious fog of the album to attract attention to a dull but obvious anger. The song records a school that shoots through three different points of view: one written by Cash, one written by Kris Kristofferson, and another by Elvis Costello. Each writer contributes a verse that impulses his own lyrical rhythm. Money highlights the pain of the mother, setting a scene on the street. Kristofferson interrupts the spell with vulgar indifference, contradicting Costell's massive summary of the consequences. These different approaches indicate that such violence is beyond a songwriter.
This is the only place He remembers everything where Cash releases the attention of another singer or decides to be so direct. It avoids co-operation; she wrote a song with singer / composer Sam Phillips, wrote several with Leventhom, and linked with Colin Meloy for December for some harmonics. But these partnerships are part of a musical fabric, rather than sparkling accessories. He remembers everything requires peaceful contemplation. The One Thing Worth Fighting For Mute Tones serve as the right keynote for the album, and its reverb waves provide a bright counterpoint to Cash's silent, forcible presence. In the midst of those vague guitars and muted rhythms, Cash lurks through the rest of the relationship, solving that love has made a valuable fight. This tension, found within music and mind, is obvious throughout the world He remembers everything.
The difficulty of maintaining relationships with the passing years is a key issue for these 48 minutes. This is not limited to romantic partnerships. The brilliant "Everyone except me" believes that his narrator stopped with the absence of his absent parents. This is a situation that shares similarities with your own story of Cash and those of many people, of course. Neither this, nor a promotion to maintain long-lasting romance, "Not Many Miles To Go", should be read as an autobiography. Like "8 Gods Of Harlem" or any of these songs, these are short stories. He remembers everything is a collection of miniatures that sketch together a vivid, impassioned portrait of blessing and barefoot life.
