Steve Earle: Jerusalem

Lyrics — 10
Well, that takes talent from one level to another. Compare the lyrics on this album to any Dylan lyrics. This would be the winner. A complete classic.

Overall Impression — 10
Steve is writing better than ever. After the global success of transcendtal blues Steve has returned with a much more political album. Tracks such as "Ashes To Ashes", "America v 6.0" and "Conspiracy Theory" show Steve's opinion on the world today. "John Walker's blues" was the track that astonished me, how someone can write a song like that. I don't know. But the track that sums this album up is "Jerusalem", the lyric we can wash the blood from our hands and hatred from our souls'
