a beautiful sophomore effort from the highly skilled producer of many (Ray Lamontagne, Kings of Leon, Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, ryan adams, Laura Marling) - a nick drake / john martyn-esque exploration of his own singer/songwriter prowess.
the artist’s voice inside Johns’ head could not be quieted. His 2013 1st solo record, 'If Not Now Then When?' was received with massive acclaim. For his subsequent record, Johns trades places behind the glass with long-time friend and collaborator Ryan Adams. The Adams-produced album, 'The Reckoning', was inspired by the landscapes of the countryside & snippets of life in each stop along the way. "voyages to new frontiers of the heart & soul" 8/10 - uncut.
