My Empire of Dirt

Johnny Cash
American IV: The Man Comes Around

I love all of the American albums, but this one is by far my favorite. Does anyone have a cooler singing voice than Johnny Cash? I'm not afraid to say that most of the songs on this album make me want to cry. But that's Johnny Cash, one moment he has you laughing at Sue, next you are rocking out at Folsom, then you find yourself weeping and sucking your thumb in the fetal position to Give My Love to Rose.

Tracks of Note:
Hurt, Personal Jesus, The Man Come Around, Give My Love to Rose

Tears are always allowed for any of Johnny's last few records. The "Hurt" video was made to elicit streams of tears.
