The Family Secret

Finally, in a music world where things seem to only fit more closely into genre specific boxes, comes the album No Depression calls “…like nothing else out there… truly spectacular.” John Carter Cash’s CD “The Family Secret” oversteps these boundaries so firmly in place and follows only one rule: the rule of the heart. This album covers new ground, blending various styles and influence. The music is diverse, yet clearly defined by John Carter’s inimitable style and writing. There are elements of hard rock here, just as evidentially heard as those of traditional country music and folk. “The Family Secret” mainly showcases John Carter as a writer, showing depth and intrigue, from the dark and searching “Cab Casket” to the rumpus and fun title song, the listener is taken for a journey they will not forget. “No One Gets Out of Here Alive” is a soul searching prayer, while “Killarney”, an eight minute Irish folk ballad, tells a tale of lost love, tragedy and finally hope. John Carter also covers a few of his long time favorites, including Louden Wainwright III’sSwimming Song” and the [/highlight]Tom Paxton[/highlight] classic “The Last Thing on my Mind.”

Reviews

"The Family Secret"

"★★★" Rolling Stone

If Johnny Cash could turn Nine Inch Nail's "Hurt" into a folk-guitar prayer, then why shouldn't his son remake Blue Oyster Cult's heavy-rocking
"Godzilla" as a Tori Amos-style piano ballad? On the follow-up to the tradition-minded album he made with the Carter Family III, 40-year-old John Carter Cash almost totally abandons his blood roots here, with evident glee. Throughout The Family Secret, there are echoes of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, even Metallica (check out the ax gymnastics on "Shadows Cross the Seine" and "Uncle Sam is Dead"). If you're looking for serious family secrets, read his half sister Rosanne's new memoir: The title track here is actually a noisy, Cramps-type rocker about a werewolf coming to terms with his bloodthirstiness.

Will Hermes, Rolling Stone Magazine, November 26, 2010

“...this album is truly spectacular... Quite simply, this is something totally different.”
