Johnny Cash - American IV: The Man Comes Around (2002)


A mediados de los 90, Johnny Cash había de alguna manera dejado atrás su extensa y arremolinada etapa de alcohol ,anfetaminas y rock n folk, el renacimiento espiritual le había traido estabilidad en el matrimonio y mejor salud, sin embargo a nivel de la industria musical era un cadaver viviente, ya nadie se acordaba de que aún seguía vestido de negro y tocando donde lo invitaran, pero Cash ahora tenía fé en tatita Dios, así que el pulento le regaló un renacimiento también musical. Conoció a Rick Rubin, un guatón barbón,millonario y famoso por producir discos de Slayer y Beastie Boys, quien lo incorporó a su sello (American), lo hizo grabar discos en el living de su casa y lo mandó a tocar en festivales rockeros como el Glastonbury, donde sorpresivamente dejaba la zorra con el público puber alternativo de la época.

Tomando lo anterior en cuenta ,su cuarto disco para el sello incluye varios covers, desde una canción de 1910 (Danny boy) hasta un par de covers de antología de gente como Depeche Mode o Nine Inch Nails, lo grosso es que el Johnny se apropia de las canciones de tal forma que parece que fueran los originales , el mismo Reznor ( de N.I.N) , aunque se habia mostrado desconfiado ante la idea del cover ,luego de oirlo tuvo que admitir que era mejor que su versión original. Aparte en este disco tambien aparecen famosillos como Fiona Apple, Nick Cave y John Frusciante ( de Red Hot), quienes a pesar de ser tan taquilla se mantienen en un correspondiente segundo plano.

Con el tiempo este disco se transformó en una especie de testamento, porque el bueno de Johnny se nos fué a la otra vida poco tiempo despues, así las canciones quedaron bañadas de un misticismo raro, entre oscuro, melancólico y premonitorio, como si la muerte estuviera por ahi presente mientras se grababa. Lindo disco, pero potente en mala.

Este es un discazo, como los 4 que sacó para el sello de Rick Rubin. Ahora, todo bien con NIN, pero.. ¿que duda cabía que Cash iba a hacer una version superior de cualquier tema? Incluso, yo soy muy fana de Los Beatles, pero In My Life la prefiero por el gran Johnny. Saludos

A mí me parecen todos unos discazos, aunque a partir del tercero la voz de Cash está ya muy cascada por la enfermedad y los discos se vuelven oscuros.

Coincido con la apreciación sobre 'In my life' y llamo la atención sobre la estupenda y sorpresiva versión de 'Personal Jesus', un tema que para mí Cash levanta totalmente.

Saludos.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
