Eight years since his last album of self-penned originals, 2010’s Rain On the City finds singer-songwriter Freedy Johnston completely recharged. “Lonely Penny” begins things with a modest quiet, a gentle introduction to ease Johnston back into the spotlight. With “Don’t Fall In Love With a Lonely Girl,” Johnston is back to full power: guitars jangling, vocals driving through the emotional angst. Tunes such as “The Other Side of Love” and “The Devil Raises His Own” (with the most perfect trumpet) recall the Johnston of old from Can You Fly? and This Perfect World, strong on mid-tempo rockers written with great self-reflection and an eye towards the succinct punch of the short story. The pacing of mid-tempos and ballads allow both to shine. “It’s Gonna Come Back to You” evokes the earnest bounce of Buddy Holly. “Livin’ Too Close to the Rio Grande” also bounces while “Central Station” and “The Kind of Love We’re In” groove in place with Johnston’s heartland vocals cementing the forlorn emotions with convincing consistency. It’s about time.
