This is a must have for any fan of folk music. John Prine is a master at seeing the absurd, lonely and depressing side of life. His politcal statements come from a common sense point of view and are right on the mark. Was there ever a better written song about the desparation of old age than "Hello in There"; a better song about the benefits of escaping reality with pot than "Illegal Smile"; or a more poignent depiction of the horrors of drug addiction than "Sam Stone." It seems to me that there is the slightest hint of a wry smile behind it all. The arrangements are simple and effective, the writing is flawless, and John's distinctive voice is perfect.
