"American V: A Hundred Highways"

I'm truly excited to hear that Johnny Cash's final "American" recording is being released on July 4. Entertainment Weekly reveiwed the disc and gave it an A-. You can read the review here.

The review mentions that Cash seemed to be very cognizant of his impending death. The album is said to be "contentedly bleak."



  1. I too am excited by this. Though I read a review somewhere that they are concerned that Cash is being Tupac-ified (putting out more albums in death than in life).

  2. Jason: I have no doubt that more of Cash's "previously unreleased recordings" will be released.

  3. Yeah, actually, there is going to be a VI to the "American" series, so this isn't the last one. Have to go pick this one up tonight.
