Nine albums and countless EPs in, roadside poet Joseph Arthur is finally delivering the mastepiece he’s worked towards his whole career: his Exile, his Blonde On Blonde, his Disintegration, his watershed. On The Ballad of Boogie Christ, Arthur sounds wasted and holy, angelic and down-home, as clear and rough and great-hearted as ever. The tunes and the themes are big: what is life, love and art? What’s right and wrong? Why do we do these things? Arthur belts it out with the glorious spirituality of U2, “Christ would be rockin’, Christ would be free, he’d say there’s no difference between you and me.” Rough redemption, validation of the real, something Joseph Arthur has striven for through a lifetime of music. It sounds like he’s being reborn.
