    This is at least a 9, but I'm upping it 'cuz T Bone is just such a great and eclectic writer/artist. It might not be his single greatest album, but it is a singly great album nonetheless !

  1. From nearly anyone else, The True False Identity would be a striking and adventurous work, but given Burnett's body of work, there's no arguing he can do better.
  2. On The True False Identity, Burnett substantiates his role as a composer and performer steeped in traditional American music.
  3. The time away and working with such diverse influences has enhanced his writing skills, The True False Identity overflowing with dense textures and dexterous social and political commentary that bursts with feverish abandon.
