And so begins "Ain't Much For Talking," the opening salvo on Tim Barry's latest album, Spring Hill. In a fashion that can only be called "perfectly Tim Barry," the line carries with it some rather immense weight and rather eloquently and succinctly sets the table for what's in store, both on the remainder of the song and on the album as a whole. If you're expecting a baker's dozen tales of introspection and honest reflection and occasional pointed-tongued humor and a handful of lines that'll punch you right square in the solar plexus, you've come to the right place.
It's been just about three years since Barry's last studio album, The Roads To Richmond, a span that pretty nearly matches the longest break between albums in a solo career that's now closer to the end of its second decade than it is to its start. And while it's fair to say that the years since The Roads To Richmond have seen the world-at-large continue to unravel in ways that are as varied as they are tumultuous, much of that turmoil is absent from Spring Hill. Instead, what follows, both on the remainder of "Ain't Much For Talking" and on Spring Hill as a whole, as a real and thorough examination of where Tim's been, a little of where he's headed, and perhaps most importantly, where all of the many hard-earned miles on the above-mentioned tires have brought him to right now.
