John Wesley Harding has tried to shake comparisons to Elvis Costello for years, and this album, with its smooth yet acerbic vocals, won't do much to further his cause. However, it is one of his best in years and is filled with witty, thoughtful songwriting and polished instrumentation that works together to make a seamless album, engaging the listener. Best songs include "She's a Piece of Work" and "I'm Wrong About Everything."
