    A deftly underplayed album. [Sep 2011, p.87]

    Hiatt's music is so damn infectious that you want to take a sip out of the flask with him.

    Every album contains a few moments of mastery, and Dirty Jeans is no exception.

    John Hiatt has now released over one third of his career recordings since the year 2000, and seems likely to continue to make good music for some time to come.

    Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns shows that John Hiatt is well served by a more hands-on production, though one might also imagine Kevin Shirley isn't necessarily the best person to do the job.

    Singer-songwriter John Hiatt's 20th album shows him still cranking out quality roots music for grown-ups.
  7. 60
    The songs are slickly constructed but you can't help feeling it is familiar territory and not a patch on past triumphs.
