What better way to start the month of November than with a bit of Rick Rubin era Johnny Cash. This, the self-penned title track off Cash’s 2002 American IV album, is filled with dark & foreboding apocalyptic imagery that suits both Cash’s voice, persona, and legend like a second skin. Cash, the master of straddling the line between light and dark and good and evil, is both well versed in the righteousness of man as well and his often detrimental demons. Being so, “The Man Comes Around” speaks as the embodiment of five decades of experience and observation.
