Johnny Cash’s American VI: Ain’t No Grave (2010) – MAYBE SO

Johnny Cash's "American VI: Ain't No Grave" (2010)

(February 23, 2010)


This may be the final posthumous Johnny Cash release and its tracks may be refugees from American V, but this is perhaps his tightest, most thematically cohesive album — these are admittedly not the most impressive songs he has chosen to interpret, and yet Rick Rubin’s arrangement adds substance to these performances, which are among Cash’s finest.

Top Two Tracks:

“Ain’t No Grave” & “Redemption Day”
