Amoeba Review

05/10/2018

The greatest bit player in rock ‘n roll history, Ry Cooder also has quite the solo career, boasting 16 albums full of bluesy Americana and inimitable slide guitarin’ throughout the past 40 years. Make that 17, now. The Prodigal Son tumbles along like an old jalopy, eschewing immaculate studio polish and other antitheses of authentic blues expression in favor of a loose, rollicking collection of songs that combine biting commentary with inescapable melodies. The whole thing is so bright and musically upbeat that every song, no matter how cheeky or self-aware, is treated with a gospel-like reverence. Even cynics can have a little “Hallelujah” in them.
