Getting better with age, hiatt now possesses a perfectly-imperfect voice, and a wisdom that always manages to cut straight to the heart of the matter.

long celebrated as a skilled storyteller and keen observer of life’s twists and turns, Hiatt can capture a knotty emotion or a moment in time with just a sharp, incisive lyric or witty turn of phrase. the 11 tracks presented in ‘The Eclipse Sessions’, from the breezy opener ‘Cry To Me’ to the stark ‘Nothing In My Heart’, the lost-love lamentation ‘Aces Up Your Sleeve’ to the rollicking ‘Poor Imitation Of God’, demonstrate that the singer-songwriter with his guitar playing more rugged and rootsy, his words wiser and more wry. There’s a grit to these songs - a craggy, perfectly-imperfect quality that colours every aspect of the performances, right down to Hiatt’s vocals, which are quite possibly his most raw and expressive to date.
